Grounded. Again. Stuart is the most in-trouble kid ever. His super-obsessive single-parent mom is always on his case, and if he’s busted one more time, she’s threatening the unthinkable—no soccer! Stuart’s best friend, a wise and wacky girl named Mack, hatches an unsettling plan to distract his mom by fixing her up with Mack’s uncle. It just might work, though—if their friendship doesn’t unravel first. And anyhow, he doesn’t want his widowed mom to date. Or does he?

Praise for Busted!

“Hicks has an ear for the dialogue of middle schoolers, and a good feel for the sometimes rocky relationships between parents and early adolescents. Soccer fans will appreciate the exciting game action as well as the true-to-life interactions among the team members. A winning combination of sports and humor with a subtle message about personal responsibility.”—School Library Journal

“The zing in this story comes from the well-drawn, believable characters. Hicks also provides plenty of accurately described soccer action and some funny lines.”—Booklist
 
“Hicks’s electric descriptions of soccer play will score extra points with fans of the sport. This tale entertains while delivering a thought-provoking message about parent-child communication and peer relationships.”—Publishers Weekly
