They call it Twenty-One Nights with the Knights. But for Elvin Bishop--fourteen, overweight, and a self-proclaimed non-athlete--the summer "retreat" is more like the twenty-one trials of hell. As everyone around him slips smoothly into a slot in his chosen sport, Elvin is pounded on the football field, slammed on the baseball diamond, and tortured on the wrestling mat. An he still can't find a slot.

But when his three weeks of torment come to an end, Elvin realizes that he's learned a thing or two. Like the value of a true friend. And the fact that everyone pays their dues sooner or later--even the guys on top.

From the acclaimed author of "Shadow Boxer" and "Iceman, " here is a raw, darkly funny story about growing up and finding a place in the world.
