Misty Wilson at The Learned Owl [10/15]

Join us on Saturday October 15th from 1-3 pm as we welcome Misty Wilson. Misty will be signing her new children's graphic novel Play Like a Girl.

Misty never shies away from a challenge, on or off the field. So when the boys tell her she can't play football, there's only one thing to do: join their team and show them what she's got. But the training is rougher than she thought—and so are the other guys, who aren't thrilled about having a girl on their team. Middle school isn't so easy, either. Misty wants to fit in with the popular kids, but they think a girl playing football is "weird." Even her best friend doesn't get it. Can Misty find a way to score points with her teammates, make new friends, and show everyone—including herself—what it means to play like a girl?
