Michael O'Reilly is the shortest kid on the lacrosse team, and the youngest. He doesn't play rough, and everyone says he's not tough enough for the sport. When tension breaks out between teams and one team accuses the other of racist behavior, Michael realizes that he is tough after all -- he's the only one brave enough to speak the truth.

"...lacrosse fans will enjoy the action, and those not familiar with the sport will benefit from the brief, appended description."— Todd Morning, Booklist, June 2010
