The Pinballs

by Byars, Betsy

The Pinballs is a 1976 young adult novel by American author Betsy Byars. The story is about three foster children, Carlie, Harvey and Thomas J. , who have been taken in by the Masons, a couple who have cared for many other foster children in the past. Carlie compares the children to pinballs, controlled by external forces and at the mercy of fate. It won the 1977 Josette Frank Award and the 1980 William Allen White Children's Book Award.
