Waiting on Wednesday: Swing by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess
Swing by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess. 432 p. Blink, October 2, 2018. 9781310761914.
I learned about this on an SLJ exclusive cover reveal last week. I love these podcasts.
Publisher synopsis: Things usually do not go as planned for seventeen-year-old Noah. He and his best friend Walt (aka Swing) have been cut from the high school baseball team for the third year in a row, and it looks like Noah’s love interest since fifth grade, Sam, will never take it past the “best friend” zone. Noah would love to retire his bat and accept the status quo, but Walt has got big plans for them both, which include making the best baseball comeback ever, getting the girl, and finally finding cool.
