Publisher Comments:

Its the worst sound Ive ever heard in all my years of umping.

Oh, Ive heard plenty of pitches hit a helmet.

But this . . . this fastball, up and in.

This one hit bone, right in the face.

Not even a scream or grunt from the kid.

He went down like he was shot. In the bottom of the last inning against their biggest rival, Oak Grove High has two men on base and the score is tied. Luke “Wizard” Wallace is at bat, and he knows what he needs to do: drive in the winning run, save the game, and be a hero. 

Luke has everything under control, except the pitch.

Synopsis:

It's the last inning of a high school baseball game between arch-rivals Oak Grove and Compton. Center fielder Luke "Wizard" Wallace steps up to the plate--and is hit by a beanball, a wild pitch that shatters his skull, destroys the vision in his left eye, and changes his life forever.

In this riveting novel, the events surrounding this pivotal moment are recounted through free-verse monologues by 28 different voices, including those of Luke and his Oak Grove teammates; the pitcher, Kyle Dawkins, and other Compton players; the two coaches; Luke's family members and teachers; and Sarah Edgerton, a new classmate who seems more affected by Luke's injury than his girlfriend is.

With its unusual format, gripping subject matter, and economy of language, Beanball is a thought-provoking, fast-paced read.

Synopsis:

Like the game of baseball, life is quirky and unpredictable, as Shane Hunter discovers when his father is accused of a crime. Shane's world is turned upside down, and he's not sure if he ever wants to--or even can--pitch again.

Synopsis:

As the star closer for his high school baseball team, Shane Hunter is untouchable. Firing fastballs at ninety miles per hour, he loves being a winner. But when his father is accused of a crime, Shane's charmed world is turned upside down. Nothing is the way it once was, and Shane's not sure he wants to — or even can — pitch ever again. But like baseball, life sometimes throws you curves, and Shane discovers it's how you play the game that counts most of all.
