All Star Fever

written by Matt Christopher, illustrated by Anna Dewdney

Bus Mercer, shortstop for the Peach Street Mudders baseball team, is dying to be on the All-Star team. The scouts have come to watch the players, and Bus has had a pretty good game. He figures if he works hard he can improve his skills and his chances to be picked for the All-Stars. But then something unexpected happens --- he gets a new mountain bike! He's so excited about the new bike, he breaks the rules about riding that his parents set up. He doesn't tell them what he's done, but he is plagued by guilty feelings, and these feelings start to affect his playing ability. Read this exciting Peach Street Mudders story to find out whether Bus finally confesses and is able to play well enough to impress the scouts.
