Synopsis: Themes: Hi-Lo, Sports, urban teens, Football. No one ever caught Ty in the open. Ty jogged back to the huddle. His teammates slapped his back. But he hadn't been running well lately. At the snap, Ty broke right again. But he tripped and fell. The ball bounced away. Finding the "right book" for struggling learners is essential to build both confidence and proficiency. Reading supports must be seamless, so that struggling readers are not stigmatized. The District 13 series does just that--written using carefully chosen vocabulary and simple sentences, the novels offer compelling teen stories about characters that interest young adult readers. Using sports as a backdrop, these edgy and mature titles confront issues that are of great importance to urban teens, especially teenaged boys: Coming of age, dating, fitting in, friendships, drugs, self-esteem, and school. Straightforward plots move readers through the 48-pages of text quickly and efficiently with satisfying resolutions.
