Danny Shine doesn't care about his school's baseball team, the Woodchucks. But he's kind of having fun sitting right behind third base at the big game. He even catches a foul ball — but that means the Woodchuck third baseman doesn't catch it, and the team loses. Suddenly, Danny finds himself back at Square One: Loserville.
When the Ferris wheel at the school fair breaks while Danny's on it, he gets a new reputation as the school jinx. Can he break the curse before he ruins everything he touches — including his relationship with the super-cool girl of his dreams, Asia O'Neill?
Raves & reviews:
Parents' Choice Recommended Seal Award Winner, 2011
"The design of Kowitt's story ought to attract Wimpy Kid fans, and the book's 'be yourself' message makes it a more earnest alternative." —Publishers Weekly
"Danny's humorous line drawings help tell the story, making this a fun and accessible book for reluctant readers and comics fans. Danny is a genuinely likable character whose reactions are understandable, and readers will empathize with him as his dilemma snowballs, cheering at his final triumph." —Booklist
"Written in the same style as the 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books (Abrams), this title will definitely appeal to reluctant readers." —School Library Journal
