Curveball, Derek Jeter & Paul Mantell

Curveball, Derek Jeter & Paul Mantell


nspired by Derek Jeter's own life, this is the fifth middle-grade novel in the New York Times bestselling Jeter Publishing Program. It focuses on the theme "Find the right role models."

"Sometimes, you were looking for role models. And sometimes, you were being one yourself."

Derek is having the best summer yet! Fun on the lake with his cousins, baseball, and a visit from his best friend, Dave: what more could he ask for? It gets even better when Derek gets to go to a Yankees game and meets a bunch of kids who play ball near the stadium, and they're good. Awesome, actually, especially Jumbo and Tiny. Derek can't wait to introduce them to Dave, but Grandma says if he wants to go to another Yankees game, he'll have to earn some of the money for tickets himself. This means spending quality time with Grandpa mowing lawns and learning the meaning of hard work.
