Left Out – Tim Green

June 30, 2019

All Landon Dorch has ever wanted was to be like everyone else. But his deafness and the way he talks have been obstacles all his life. Now he finally gets an opportunity to fit in. Bigger and taller than any other seventh grader at his new school, Landon plans to use his size to his advantage. but football, and making a place for himself on the Bronxville team, proves harder than he thought, especially when the coaches encourage him to be their oversize water boy. Just when it looks like Landon will be left out for good, Brett Bell–a star player whose family knows about being different–becomes an unlikely friend. In the end, though, only Landon can fight his way off the bench and through a crowded field of bullies bent on seeing him forever left out. (Description taken from the book: Left Out.
