How I Overcame Grief: How to Ease the Pain Excerpts from Real Experiences
Eighth grader Toby Fields and the Sabens' Stars are about to begin yet another season on the basketball court. Still haunted by the fact that he missed the final shot last season in the big game against the Wizards, Toby doesn't think he deserved the signed team basketball presented to him after that final game. What good is positive effort and attitude if you can't win the game?
Hoping for improving skills and a more valuable position on the team, Toby knows he still has the support of his three best friends and teammates on and off the court. Team rival, David Craig, continues to criticize Toby's every attempt, especially now that Alyssa sits right beside him in almost every class. And it seems that Toby is called more frequently to Miss Foley's office.
Toby discovers that something just seems to be missing! He realizes quickly that he needs his three best friends, his principal, Alyssa, David, his parents, and even a new student at Sabens Middle School to help him find The Key to the Case!
