Description/Notes
The 'souls' are a team of four sixth graders chosen by their teacher-who has recently become a paraplegic as the result of a car accident-to compete together in their school's academic bowl. This masterfully crafted novel reveals their individual stories and explores the special bond that forms between them. Text copyright 2004 Lectorum Publications, Inc.
Did Mrs. Olinsky choose the four members of the sixth grade Academic Bowl Team, or did they choose her--and one another? Four stories-within-in-a-story, interspersed with the ongoing narrative of the team's triumphant march to the state championship, introduce each member of the team in his own her own voice, and bring the dynamics of the group into focus.
