Checkmate

Muldoon, Kathleen M.

Twelve-year-old P.J.’s family life is unusual. His mother is in the military and gets reassigned at least once a year to a new base. His stay-at-home father is the creator of a popular syndicated cartoon and is deaf - a fact that Mike doesn't view as an issue until he's starts the 7th grade when a group of bullies make fun of his father's signing and grunting sounds. So when his mom gets reassigned the next summer, P.J. gets excited - hoping 8th grade will be better. Unfortunately, it's not.
