TAKE THE SHOT by Johnny Bell

In Take the Shot, Zack Packson guides the reader through life as a new middle school student. The Packson family is nearing the end of their time apart as Zack’s father is nearing the end of his military deployment. Zack is excited because he is also preparing for try-outs for the middle school boys basketball team. The reader joins as Zack is at the park with his friend Colton. But as Zack rounds the last corner to his home, he sees a terrifying site: a black suburban is parked out front and two military officers are at the front door. Zack’s mom is horrified at the news- his father’s convoy hit an IED. In the following days and weeks, Zack leads the reader through the ups and downs as his family handles the next step.
