Joey and Zach are best friends and looking forward to the championship baseball game. The next step is for the boys to both make the All-Star team. Mr. Katz schedules an extra credit field trip for the same day as the championships and the boys make a decision to vandalize the teacher’s car so the trip gets cancelled. Joey and Zach discover there is only ONE spot on the All-Stars team so they go from being best friends to biggest rivals while keeping a huge secret from everyone, especially Joey’s mom who is the sheriff’s deputy.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award, 2015)
