Penalty Shot


by Matt Christopher

Jeff Connors is psyched to be back on the Winston Blades hockey team. He had to turn in his uniform last year when his grades in English slipped below eligibility level. This year, he’s determined not to let that happen, even though it means working with a writing tutor. But just when Jeff feels he has made progress, his writing lands him in hot water again! First, a carefully composed paper is mysteriously replaced by one sure to earn him a failing grade. But even worse, Jeff is accused of penning a vicious note to his best friend. Can Jeff find out who is sabotaging him in time to save his place on the team as well as his friendship?
