Summary

Brock is on the run again in New York Times bestselling author Tim Green's companion book to New Kid. Perfect for fans of Mike Lupica or Dan Gutman's Baseball Card Adventure series.

With his strong left arm, Brock knows he can be a great quarterback, and with the help of his new friend, Mak, he has a plan to make the first team. But the coaches have plans of their own, especially for the kids from the wrong side of the tracks, which is exactly where Brock now lives.

As Brock is trying to fit in, his father's past is catching up to him--and one chance meeting causes everything to come crashing down. Will Brock finally be able to navigate his new life, or will his past force him back on the run?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kicking off with a high-intensity car chase, Green's latest stars 12-year-old Brock Barrette and his dad, who are once more on the run due to secrets from his father's CIA past. They find refuge in Calhoun, Ohio, a middle-of-nowhere town where Brock's father promises they can build a normal life. Eager to fit in, Brock knows that Calhoun is a football town and trades in his baseball glove for some pads and a desire to become a first-team quarterback. Town politics are heavily entwined with the sport, and Brock faces bullying from a coach and teammates for being a Flatty (from the wrong side of town). Not everyone has it out for Brock; a new friend and the pretty girl from the library help Brock both on and off the field, though when shadows from the past resurface, Brock's new life is threatened in unexpected ways. This story of friendship, fresh starts, and belonging has appeal that continues far past the end zone.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2014 Booklist"
