Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Danny's tall and skinny. Even though hes not built, his arms are long enough to give his pitch a power so fierce any college scout would sign him on the spot. Ninety-five mile per hour fastball, but the boys not even on a team. Every time he gets up on the mound he loses it.

But at his private school they dont expect much from him. Dannys half Mexican. And growing up in San Diego means everyone else knows exactly who he is before they find out he cant speak Spanish, and before they realize his mom has blond hair and blue eyes. And thats why hes spending the summer with his dads family. To find himself, he might just have to face the demons he refuses to see right in front of his face.
