With so much upheaval, Billy has to figure out how to be the best team player on his own. Part of Mike Lupica's Comeback Kid middle grade series.
In the wake of his parents' separation, Billy seems to have continual conflicts with his father, who is also his basketball coach, but his younger brother Ben is having even more trouble adjusting, and only Billy seems to notice.
