Long Shot for Paul


by Matt Christopher

No one tries harder than Paul…but is that enough?

Paul Marlette is a special needs kid — a little slow to learn, but always eager to try. His brother, Glenn, is determined to teach him to play basketball well enough to become part of the Sabers team. Under Glenn’s patient guidance, Paul improves. But there’s still a lot to overcome: Paul’s difficulty grasping the rules of the game, Coach Munson’s desire to have a powerhouse team, and the other Sabers who aren’t sure they want Paul on the team. Can Paul and Glenn succeed in the end?
