12-year-old Jeremiah is the world's biggest baseball fan, even though he can no longer play. When he was 10, he got sick and eventually had a heart transplant, so now he has to be really careful ... and he can't run.
His love of the game hasn't changed, though. When he and his dad move to a new community, Jeremiah is convinced that baseball will solve the town's problems. But not everyone agrees.
No sex, no blood, minimal cussing. Some off - page drug use (sport steroids) cause a huge scandal in the town.
Excellent parent and teacher characters, and the best ballplayer in town is a 12-year-old girl.
Highly recommended for ages 9 to adult.
The events may not have happened; still, the story is true. --R. Silvern
