About the Book

From the critically acclaimed author of Mascot comes this heartfelt novel, perfect for fans of John David Anderson and Cammie McGovern, about a girl searching for the meaning of family.

Lola and Momma have always been a team of two. It hasn’t always been easy for Lola, being one of the only kids she knows with just one parent around. And lately she’s been feeling incomplete, like there’s a part of herself that she can’t know until she knows her dad.

But what will happen—to Lola, to Momma, to their team of two—if she finds him?

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

PRAISE FOR Mascot: “The strength and beauty of this novel lie in the ways in which a community gathers around Noah. You’ll bawl at the ending, because it is so very real.” - New York Times Book Review

“Wonderful. Poignant. Beautifully written. Perfect voice. Do not miss this book. Mascot is a masterpiece.” - Roland Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Peak, Zach’s Lie, and Cryptid Hunters

Mascot is the kind of book that makes me want to dress up in a costume and loudly tell the world about it.” - Obert Skye, bestselling author of the Leven Thumps series

“Noah’s dilemma is universal: the struggle to rebuild identity when what once defined us no longer exists. Highlights the challenges of adapting to puberty and sudden disability at the same time.” - Kirkus Reviews

“This action-packed, humorous story contains well-developed, dynamic characters who are thoughtful and relatable.” - School Library Journal

“It is heartening to see young characters who don’t hesitate at their differences or care what other people think. As Noah comes to terms with his life-changing accident in this refreshingly fastpaced novel, readers will have an easy time cheering him on as he moves toward recovery.” - Booklist

“The comedy balances accessibly with Noah’s grief, and readers will appreciate his return to the field.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
