Worse Things

Sally Murphy

illustrated by Sarah Davis

from Walker Books...

A story about connections, the ways they are made and what happens when they are lost.

When youíre part of the team the sideline is a place of refuge of rest of reprieve. But when you'íre out of the team the sideline changes. Suddenly itís the loneliest place of them all. 

After a devastating football injury, Blake struggles to cope with life on the sideline. Jolene, a gifted but conflicted hockey player, wants nothing more than for her dad to come home. And soccer-loving refugee, Amed, wants to belong. On the surface, it seems they have nothing in common. Except sport. 

A touching and inspirational story about the things that bind us all.
