About the Book

Six-year-old Josie wants to try out for the Braves little league football team, but his grandma Patsy says no. She’s worried because football is a tough sport, and he could get hurt.

Josie decides he will prove to his grandma that he will be, tough, brave, and most of all safe. He turns to his imaginary best friend Maddie for help, after all, she knows everything. Maddie helps Josie make his very own homemade football gear to protect him on the field. She also teaches him her top secret move “meltdown.” Now it’s time to try out for the team, its Josie’s big chance. Will he be one of the Braves?
