THE HARDEST HIT Now Available in Paperback!

My middle grade novel, The Hardest Hit, is now available in paperback.

Eleven year old Sam Parker loves to play hockey. But this is the year that he will start body-checking. His natural fear of getting hit is temporarily overshadowed by finding out his parents are getting divorced.

Determined to keep them together by being a hockey superstar, Sam instead suffers a bone-crunching check from the school bully in his first game of the season. The resulting pain and fear brings out the worst in Sam as one difficulty after another piles on. Even his best friend, Jill, doesn't always seem to understand what he's going through.

When will his head stop hurting? Will he ever be able to play hockey again? How can he keep his parents together? Or can he? It will take everything Sam has to bounce back. Every one of his problems feel like ...the hardest hit.

The Hardest Hit is part of the Sam the Hockey Player series (first book).

You can get it HERE (preferred) or on Amazon (within a few days) or order it from your favorite bookstore.  The Hardest Hit by Frank Scalise, ISBN 978-1463550059.
