About the Edition

Thirteen-year-old Flip Simpson"s ideal life just began to crumble. His adoptive parents are splitting up. He"s moving from the only home he"s ever known. He has to leave before his baseball team finishes the playoffs. And his little sister is his only companion.  Flip folds under the weight of so much loss until he meets Ricki, an indigenous classmate who loves baseball and gives Flip a sense of pride in his Mayan roots, and Zorba, an eccentric houseboat dweller who is a cross between The Cat in the Hat and Willy Wonka. Zorba possesses an uncanny ability to sense Flip"s fears and doubts and inspires the courage Flip needs to overcome both. Just as life begins to look up, Flip is faced with the challenge of a racist bully. Steve picks at the wounds Flip has tried so hard to mend and brings to the surface questions Flip didn"t know he had about race, culture and belonging. Will Flip rise to the challenge and face Steve, or retreat into himself once again?
