Product description

Review

"Jerry Spinelli has created another middle grade masterpiece. These are unforgettable characters.  ...authentic and frequently funny...riveting." —BookPage, starred review

"Spinelli shines at setting a tongue-in-cheek tone for a tale with serious underpinnings, and as in Stargirl, readers will be swept into the relationship that develops between this adolescent odd couple. Characters to love, quips to snort at, insights to ponder." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Spinelli writes with wry humor that still makes room for sweetness and a belief in the impossible. A stellar pick for tween collections." —Booklist, starred review

"Spinelli captures eighth-grade social dynamics, Worm’s self-erasure, and Becca’s confidence with vivid authenticity." —The Bulletin, starred review

“This fever dream of a story about self-acceptance and forgiveness is unforgettable.” —Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Centering meaningful themes of ephemerality, forgiveness, and self-acceptance, Spinelli’s characters will undoubtedly dig their way into the hearts of readers who need them most." —Publishers Weekly

"Spinelli makes the relationship between a boy and a ghost heartwarming; the life lessons of a dead girl profound; and social commentary astute but not didactic. Dialogue is snappy, and every scene is tight and memorable." —The Horn Book Magazine

"Throughout his career, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli has shown he’s a master of evoking the particular pangs felt in adolescence." —Time Magazine

Growing up, Jerry Spinelli was really serious about baseball. He played for the Green Sox Little League team in his hometown of Norristown, Pennsylvania, and dreamed of one day playing for the major leagues, preferably as shortstop for the New York Yankees.

One night during high school, Spinelli watched the football team win an exciting game against one of the best teams in the country. While everyone else rode about town tooting horns in celebration, Spinelli went home and wrote "Goal to Go," a poem about the game's defining moment, a goal-line stand. His father submitted the poem to the Norristown Times-Herald and it was featured in the middle of the sports page a few days later. He then traded in his baseball bat for a pencil, because he knew that he wanted to become a writer.

After graduating from Gettysburg College with an English degree, Spinelli worked full time as a magazine editor. Every day on his lunch hour, he would close his office door and craft novels on yellow magazine copy paper. He wrote four adult novels in 12 years of lunchtime writing, but none of these were accepted for publication. When he submitted a fifth novel about a 13-year-old boy, adult publishers once again rejected his work, but children's publishers embraced it. Spinelli feels that he accidentally became an author of children's books.

Spinelli's hilarious books entertain both children and young adults. Readers see his life in his autobiography Knots in My Yo-Yo String, as well as in his fiction. Crash came out of his desire to include the beloved Penn Relays of his home state of Pennsylvania in a book, while Maniac Magee is set in a fictional town based on his own hometown.

When asked if he does research for his writing, Spinelli says: "The answer is yes and no. No, in the sense that I seldom plow through books at the library to gather material. Yes, in the sense that the first 15 years of my life turned out to be one big research project. I thought I was simply growing up in Norristown, Pennsylvania; looking back now I can see that I was also gathering material that would one day find its way into my books."

On inspiration, the author says: "Ideas come from ordinary, everyday life. And from imagination. And from feelings. And from memories. Memories of dust in my sneakers and humming whitewalls down a hill called Monkey."

Spinelli lives with his wife and fellow writer, Eileen, in West Chester, Pennsylvania. While they write in separate rooms of the house, the couple edits and celebrates one another's work. Their six children have given Jerry Spinelli a plethora of clever material for his writing.
