Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Willie Weaver used to be a hero.
Now he's nothing.

Willie is a top athlete, the star of the legendary game against Crazy Horse Electric. Then a freak accident robs him of his once-amazing physical talents.

Betrayed by his family, his girlfriend, and his own body, Willie's on the run, penniless and terrified on the streets, where he must fight to rebuild both his body and his life.

Synopsis:

Baseball hero Willie is suddenly in an accident and is left brain damaged. Shunned by everyone, the 16 year old runs away and enrolls in a special school. With the help of one special man and the people around him, he learns to cope with his condition. Now with new cover art.
