Information about the author.
Joanie’s mom wants her to act more “like a girl,” but who can play basketball in a skirt and cute plastic sandals? When Joanie’s family moves to a new town, a typo on the school records makes her “John” instead of “Joan,” and she jumps at the chance to reinvent herself. But how long can she keep pretending? And even if she could keep her identity secret, would she want to? Being a boy is no walk in the park! Francess Lantz seamlessly weaves great sports action, a compelling family drama, and Joanie’s secret stories about SuperKid into a funny, thought-provoking novel about friendship and self-discovery.
