Tarantula Shoes

(1995)
A novel by

 
Desperate to have the right shoes to start his first day of middle school, Ryan has set his sights on the $125 Slam Dunk Sky Jumpers - but can he put together the money in time?

Ryan O'Keefe can't believe his bad luck. Moving to a new state right before sixth grade is hard enough, but when he finds out that sixth grade is part of middle school in Kentucky, he realizes he may have to spend the year getting picked on by the older students. When he meets a couple of seventh graders wearing Slam Dunk Sky Jumpers, the coolest new shoes, Ryan knows he has to have a pair, and then maybe he'll be cool too. There's just one problem: The shoes are $125 - plus tax!

Ryan's parents give him forty dollars, so now all he has to do is come up with eighty-five more and the shoes are his. The only question is, how is he going to get eighty-five dollars in the remaining week before school starts?
