FIFTH QUARTER HC GN
FIRST SECOND BOOKS
MAR211301
(W) Mike Dawson (A) Mike Dawson
The first book in a middle-grade graphic novel duology about a girl who deals with her
insecurities through her love of basketball and her desire to get better at the game.
Lori Block is dedicated to her fourth-grade basketball team, despite being relegated to
an extra period before the real game starts, known as the fifth quarter, where the
not-so-good kids play and the points don't count. That doesn't matter to Lori though,
because working on her skills gives her hints of self-confidence, which is a nice break
from feeling awkward and out-of-place in her daily life. With athletic promise and a
dogged determination to keep improving, Lori pursues her passion while navigating
awkward social dynamics, her own expectations, and her first overnight away from
home. Will her drive allow her to find true courage both on the court, in school, and
at home?
