Superficially, at least, the last name seemed to fit them best, for all seven of the boys were on a year's probation for beating a helpless old man. Left to their own devices, they probably would have turned to crime if they had not met a soft-spoken stranger named Ed Sorrell....begins to realize that Ed Sorrell has restored their self-respect and given them a sense of team play that is applicable to basketball and to life itself." Corners & spine bumped, dustjacket chipped with 1" tear at top of spine. Was in a church library, with church name/address stamped on fron t & rear endpapers, a name & 1965 written inside front cover, and library pocket w/card on front endpaper.
