When Alvin's sister lands the lead in the school play, his parents tell him he'll need to find an after-school activity to keep him busy until they can pick up both kids. A fast runner, Alvin would like to give track and field a try, but it's the wrong season and he reluctantly chooses cross-country instead. But there's more to running cross country than being fast. Alvin must learn how to use patience and pacing, or he'll be left in the dust. Reader support tools, like a glossary and discussion questions, round out this story from the high-interest Jake Maddox JV series.

came tearing in, and the man was out. One out, instead of a man on second with
no one down. Well, that's picking me up; that's certainly picking me up all right.

The Brooklyn Dodgers finally have a shot at the pennant—if they can stay together as a team It’s Spike Russell’s second year in the majors with his brother, Bob, and the Brooklyn Dodgers are in the pennant race, thanks in part to rookie pitcher Bones Hathaway. Spike is finding it difficult to balance playing shortstop and managing the players, but he knows he’s up for the challenge. But when the club secretary, Bill Hanson, starts criticizing Spike’s managerial skills and implying that the young manager is running the team into the ground, the crew Spike had such high hopes for begins to fall apart. Spike will have to prove himself to his teammates to regain their trust and lead them to victory.

Rodney is a teenager who got caught up in drugs and was helped by God-loving people. When he thought he could not be forgiven for his sin and no one could ever love him, he found God’s love by reading the Bible. Now he was torn between his love for baseball and God. He was invited to spring training with the New York Yankees, but he also wanted to preach. After each game, he walked the streets of New York, preaching on every corner. He drew huge crowds and converted so many people that pimps and drug dealers threatened his life and beat him in their attempt to get him off the streets. But Rodney would not stop preaching and was willing to die, if that was God’s will. The Yankees won the pennant, and Rodney was their starting pitcher in games one, four, and seven in the World Series. The death threats never stopped, and Rodney could have been killed at any time, but he was sure God would protect him. His courage and faith led thousands to Christ as a result. When the rapture came at the end of game seven, Rodney was the first to meet Jesus in the air, followed by thousands of others who were believers.

Since its release in 1982, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, has remained a cult classic through its depiction of a futuristic Los Angeles; its complex, enigmatic plot; and its underlying questions about the nature of human identity. The Blade Runner Experience: The Legacy of a Science Fiction Classic examines the film in a broad context, examining its relationship to the original novel, the PC game, the series of sequels, and the many films influenced by its style and themes. It investigates Blade Runner online fandom and asks how the film's future city compares to the present-day Los Angeles, and it revisits the film to pose surprising new questions about its characters and their world.
