Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Renowned for being one of the few writers who can hit the mark with teenage boys, Rich Wallace takes the sports novel and pushes it into thought-provoking new territory.

Seventeen-year-old Herbie takes life as it comes-his small town in eastern Pennsylvania, his divorced parents, his football and cross-country coaches who can't quite understand why he would want to go out for both sports simultaneously. Not many people do understand the kid that's under the wisecracking, laid-back exterior. But his older brother does. The only thing is, his brother's dead.

Here's a ghost story as real and exhilarating as they come.

"Rich Wallace vaults into the first string with Bruce Brooks and Chris Crutcher."-Robert Lipsyte, author of The Contender

Synopsis:

Wallace takes the sports novel and pushes it into thought-provoking new territory with this tale about a 17-year-old athlete and the only person who understands him--his older brother, who happens to be dead.
