Beloved Canadian author Scott Young delves into Canada’s love of sports with this heartwarming short-story collection, which features “Seven Parts of a Ball Team,” “Player Deal,” “We Won’t Be Needing You, Al,” “Vacancy in Goal,” and “White Musky.” With his trademark wit, Young reminds us of the simple joy of taking part in sports.
Charlotte’s attacks have everyone on high alert—everyone except Lee Fisher, the closeted son of the US president. Lee has other things to worry about, like keeping his Secret Service detail from finding out about his crush on Nico, the eccentric, Shakespeare-obsessed new boy at school. And keeping Nico from finding out about his recent suicide attempt. And keeping himself from freaking out about all his secrets.
But when attacks start happening at his school, Lee realizes he’s Charlotte’s next target. Even worse, Nico may be part of Charlotte’s plan too.
As Lee races to save himself, uncover Charlotte’s plan, and figure out if he can trust Nico, he comes to a whole new understanding of what it means to be alive…and what makes life worth living.
