Scott Riley, the SAS middle school literacy coach, just alerted me to the fact that the “Curve Ball” title on the Red Dot Books: Mature longlist was the wrong one. We wanted this one: “Curveball” The Year I Lost My Grip” by Jordan Sonnenblick.
The one I obviously clicked by mistake when setting up the GoodReads shelves was some (trashy?) heroine romance called “Curve Ball” by Charlotte Stein — which you don’t want your students reading!
If you have given the list out to students for summer reading, you might want to have them note the correction on the GoodReads shelf: MATURE Longlist 2013-2014
