Long Shot by Mike Lupica
My husband saw this book on the coffee table as part of my personal summer reading. "Mike Lupica, where have I heard that name before?"
Mike Lupica is a sports writer who now writes sports fiction for the 9-12-year-old group. Although the main character is in high school, I found the content appropriate for the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade boys I teach. Succeeding in sports is crucial to the outcome of the book, but developing character traits is even more important.
Here is a free printable character sketch where students collect evidence that a character has a particular trait.
