off the team and all of the other teammates want him back. When he calls Paul back he returns, plays the game, and wins it all.

This book is a great book. It was an old book but I thought it was good. This book was made and illustrated in 1984 by Catherine Christopher. My favorite part was when Paul comes back and wins it all. I did not really get it though because I think they rushed the book. They probably could have made the book bigger than it is. I think that everyone should read this book.
