Bad Shot

My newest book for young readers came out in August 2017!



Cody Wallace loves to play basketball and can’t wait to try out for the school team. When a new kid arrives, a real basketball wizard, Cody is excited about the prospect of shooting hoops with him. Nick is really good. He seems nice and is very helpful, but something isn’t right. Cody can’t even sink simple shots when Nick is around and he quickly loses confidence in his game. As basketball season gets going, Cody learns there is more than one kind of bully. How can he get his game back?
