Jack's a star player on an elite soccer team along with his brother, Alex. The Lancers are on top of the league, even favored to win the National Championship. But the game's about to change. A slick bookie wins Jack's friendship and introduces him to illegal betting. Before long, Jack is hooked on the adrenaline rush, and early wins convince him that gambling could make him rich. Meanwhile, an ever-widening rift is forming between the two brothers. Suddenly, Jack's "system" fails and his luck runs out. How could a few losses pile up to a gut-kicking ten grand? When he can't pay, the bookie gives Jack one way out—throw the National Championship. But can he betray his brother, his team and himself?

Every child has a voice - if we take the time to listen. In this appealing, energetic picture book, two kids with different challenges and strengths find they are just what the other needs to navigate classroom life. Tyson does everything fast - so fast he often disrupts the class. His teacher is always saying, "Too fast, Tyson!" And often he ends up playing all alone. Suze, the new girl, is nonverbal with special needs. Sometimes her classmates don't know what those needs are. But Tyson understands. Taking the time to interpret her cues, Tyson forms a special friendship with Suze, and teaches his classmates what it means to listen and understand others. Claudia Dávila's bright, energetic art captures the joy of moving at your own speed and connecting with a friend who can ride alongside.
