Mary Mahony, a former board member of the NSF wrote this book, “Stand Tall, Harry”. Unlike her first two books which have focused largely on scoliosis, Stand Tall, Harry is about an African American student who is bused from the city to the suburbs for his education. Harry shares with his grandfather his desire to find a best friend at his school. Eventually Harry befriends a boy named Jack which ultimately brings them both to the chessboard. Harry endures a serious hockey injury, an eventual diagnosis of scoliosis, and soon finds himself as a possible USA chess star.
