Full of bright photographs and vivid descriptions, Extreme Sports by Lynette Evans is a riveting introduction to the world of extreme sports. Evans encompasses a wide range of the extremes, from rock climbing and surfing to mountain boarders and extreme ironing (yes, extreme ironing!). The book also includes vocabulary-expanding insets, tips for critical reading, and a glossary of helpful terms. While the book shows how exciting and fun extreme sports can be, it also highlights the many dangers associated with the extreme behaviors of these athletes. The book does not pass judgment either way and leaves it up to readers to consider the pros and cons of extreme sporting events.

Can you imagine the sport of football without tackles? Without injuries? Is it possible to keep the sport millions love while also keeping its players safe? Since its humble beginnings in the 1860's, American football has become seemingly less dangerous with more safety precautions by way of physical padding and high-tech helmets, change of actual game play, more strictly-enforced rules, and the like. But modern medicine has discovered the effects of concussions and head blows in general, even with advances in gear and enhanced safety precautions, can ruin more than just a season; they could ruin 'or even prematurely end- your life. See the darker side of American football (and contact sports in general), and decide if you're still willing to take the risk of taking the field or supporting those who do.

There is only one thing Felix wants more than to become a professional baseball player. That is for his father to join him and his mother in Florida and be able to join a major league baseball team himself. Felix and his mother fled Cuba when Felix was a baby. His father, a Cuban baseball star, gave up his place on the boat so that Felix could be free. That is all Felix's mother has told him. Felix would give anything for his father to see him play. His mother works constantly and Felix feels she doesn't support his baseball dreams. One day, Felix sneaks into a baseball team's locker room and is mistaken for their batboy. What a chance! Felix stows away on their bus to live his dream, if only for one day. Will his mother ever forgive him? The drama is intense as Felix is in for surprises, not always pleasant, about his father, his mother, and himself.
