Description: Despite his love of drawing and his feelings of inadequacy as an athlete, sixth-grader Xander Suitcase Bingham works to become a baseball player to win the approval of his father. What do you do when you're eleven years old, over six feet tall, and not only hate basketball? Alexander Suitcase Bingham really wants to know. He's sick and tired of being the last kid picked in gym class. He's sick and tired of not being the athletic son his daddy seems to want. Xander has had enough. Whatever it takes to show the gym rats he can beat them at their own game, he's determined to do. (112 pgs) Age 9-12
Ashay says, "Finally a story for boys, that emphasizes making your own choices and following your own dreams. In this case, he does not want to play sports, but his father wants him in the game."
