Realistic (fiction), Trade Book, Lexile 870
Noah, Nadia, Ethan, and Julian are a misfit group of friends who call themselves The Souls. They are also part of Mrs. Olinski's sixth-grade academic bowl team at Epiphany Middle School. After beating out the seventh- and eighth-grade teams, they go on to compete at the regional finals. Each question at the finals is linked to personal history for one of the team members. The connection between their lives and the questions is revealed through flashbacks. The Souls end up winning the academic bowl regional championships, but this is a minor victory compared with winning the friendship and respect of each other and their teacher.
