Book of the Day: The Swag is in the Socks

Thursday, February 10, 2022
All Day


Xavier Moon is not one to steal the show. He’s perfectly content to play his Switch and sit at  his bedroom window watching the neighborhood talk outside. But for Xavier’s twelfth birthday, he receives a pair of showstopping socks and a challenge from his great-uncle Frankie Bell, saying it’s time to swag out and speak up. First on the list: get into the legendary Scepter League, Xavier’s grandfather, great-uncle, and father were all invited to join the after-school elite boys’ club that admits only the most suave and confident young men. Xavier has never had the courage to apply before, but his wild socks are getting him some big attention, so maybe it’s time to come out of the shadows and follow in his family’s footsteps. Or maybe Xavier will march down a new path altogether.
