About this show

Turner Buckminster III can't win: he's the new kid in town, he plays baseball differently, and his only friend is Lizzie Bright Griffin from Malaga Island, an impoverished community founded by former slaves. When powerful forces threaten Lizzie Bright and her kin, Turner faces the ultimate test of his character--and learns a hard-earned lesson about courage and loss. Powerful, soul-searching and beautiful, our world-premiere commission is based on the Newbery Honor book.
