      The Right Hook of Devin Velma

      by Jake Burt

      Oct 2018

      Upper Elementary & Junior High

      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.

      The Internet provides “information in a flash!” But how does it work? The path from typing a Web site’s address to seeing the site pop up on the screen is fairly involved—but very fast. This easy-to-follow overview of the Internet is full of useful information (“every device in a network has its own address,” called an IP, or internet protocol, address; protocols are “common rules that all computers follow so that information can be requested and sent.”). The attractive design employs clear, helpful visuals including large color photographs, diagrams, labels, and a table of common Internet abbreviations. Occasional text boxes offer interesting tidbits: “Not all of the pieces [of information] travel the same path to your device. They go whichever way is easiest.” Front matter contains word count, vocabulary, and “Before & After Reading Activities,” while back matter consists of Internet safety tips, a photo glossary, Web sites to visit, and an index.
