Jimi’s frustrated with a lot of the changes that middle school brings.
A bigger field, leading off, and stealing bases - real baseball! Jimi and Isaac are moving up from Little League. Jimi thinks baseball is a muscle memory game: You play how you practice.

Isaac Farmer figured the best way to win the science fair was to make the judges think he could save the planet, so he did this big display on "green" stuff. He put in everything he could think of (like solar power and wind power and stream power and outhouse power) and made it sound like it all worked and he understood everything.
Isaac always knows the answer. Everything is easy for him. But when his dad falls off the roof, Isaac can't help. He can't fix his dad's brain, he can't fix how helpless his mom feels, and he can't stop making things worse. Isaac needs to learn to wait, and to accept life as it happens. That's not an easy thing for Isaac. This is a tough book, but it's appropriate for anyone of any age trying to deal with TBI or other catastrophic injuries.
Jimi and Isaac pester their billionaire buddy Ash Berg into letting them "jazz up" his space expedition. Ash plays along, knowing they will fail and learn from their failure. Isaac prefers to make a limited but credible effort and claim a limited but credible victory. Jimi takes the challenge seriously, and eventually he comes up with something that's not completely stupid. Too bad Jimi's rich friend has forgotten about the whole thing. Maybe Jimi did all that work for nothing.
In their biggest adventure yet, Jimi and Isaac need to make everybody get along, or at least keep everyone from fighting with each other.

Can they find the help they need?
Jimi and Isaac spent last summer on Jimi's grandpa's farm, so this summer should be easy. Now that they can bale hay, cut silage, and milk cows, it's time to raise beef steers and show them in the fair! But a new summer brings a new set of challenges, and Jimi's grandpa isn't getting any younger. He can't help the boys as much as he'd like, and maybe he needs more help than he will admit.
An audiobook for kids that are crazy about farming and animals! Jimi and Isaac think they are going to have a fun summer away from their parents and on Grandpa’s farm.

They learn as much as they can as fast as they can, so they can help with the fun chores. Just as they are getting to be useful, Grandpa gets hurt pulling a calf and it's up to Jimi and Isaac to get all the chores done.
