What do you do when your mother takes embarrassing moments from your life and includes them in books read by kids all over the country? If you’re Harvey Ryan, you come up with a scheme to distract your mom into thinking about anything but writing.
So Harvey and his best friend, Seal, decide to set his mom up with a date. But the only single man they know is the school principal. Though they’re good at playing matchmaker, they don’t anticipate that their choice of suitor will cause Harvey even more grief than his mother’s books.
With summer-league baseball fast approaching, Harvey must figure out how to make his principal stop coming to his house, how to get his mother to stop visiting his school, and how to pitch better than his arch rival, Bart. One mother can sure cause a lot of trouble in a boy’s life!
