How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy by Crystal Allen
Release Date: February 22, 2011
Thirteen-year-old Lamar Washington is the maddest, baddest most spectacular bowler ever at Striker's Bowling Paradise. But when it comes to girls, he doesn't have game—not like his older brother Xavier the Basketball Savior. And certainly not like his best friend "Spanish fly guy" Sergio. So Lamar vows to spend the summer changing his image from dud to stud by finding a way to make money and snag a super fine Honey! When a crafty teenage thug invites Lamar to use his bowling skills to hustle, he seizes the opportunity. As his judgment blurs, Lamar makes an irreversible error, damaging every relationship in his life. Now, he must figure out how to mend those broken ties, no matter what it will cost him.
-This just sounds like a hilarious MG novel. And I definitely want to see more humorous books for kids and teens about poc. I love that Lamar is going to use his bowling skills "to hustle", lol.
