Publisher's Summary

From the author of Greetings from Witness Protection! comes another unforgettable middle-grade novel about friendship and family.

Devin wants to hit it big on the Internet by pulling a stunt at an NBA game - one the entire nation will be watching. Addison can't turn Devin down, but he can barely manage talking to his teachers without freezing up. How's he supposed to handle the possibility of being a viral sensation?

Addi's not sure why Devin is bent on pulling off this almost-impossible feat. Maybe it has something to do with Devin's dad's hospital bills. Maybe it all goes back to the Double-Barreled Monkey Bar Backflip of Doom. Or maybe it's something else entirely. No matter what, though, it's risky for both of them, and when the big day finally comes, Devin's plan threatens more than just their friendship.

With memorable protagonists and a wonderful supporting cast, The Right Hook of Devin Velma is a one-of-kind knockout in middle-grade fiction.

Devin is a scrappy kid with lofty ambitions

Audio performance is great - the voices of the family members in the story are warm and humorous. The story drew me in. The adventures and challenges of the primary characters are relevant and timely to 2018. Middle grade readers will be drawn to the awkwardness and foibles of the compelling young protagonists and adults will appreciate the thoughtful depiction of middle class families raising kids in modern America. Let Devin earn a place on your favorite kids bookshelf today!
