Description
In this riveting story about baseball and brotherhood, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks finds himself pitching his way out of poverty--one strike at a time. By "a premier author of provocative YA sports novels" ( The Bulletin ). Lazarus "Laz" Weathers has always been shy, and his issue with stuttering when he speaks hasn't helped. Stuck in a Seattle trailer park, Laz finds baseball helps him escape from the world of poverty and drugs. When he gets an opportunity to pitch for the rich kids across town, he has a chance to get drafted by the major leagues. But playing for the other team means leaving behind his family, including Antonio, Laz's younger brother, who more and more, seems to be drawn to the dark world of the Jet City's drug ring. Now Laz will have to choose between being the star pitcher he always dreamed of becoming and the team player his family needs.

display_descriptionLaz Weathers wants out of Jet City, the trailer park in Seattle where he lives. When he gets an offer to move in with a host family and pitch for a high-profile high school baseball team, he knows it is his last chance to impress major league scouts and start down the road to becoming a league player. But playing for the rich kids across town would mean leaving behind not only his mother, but also his brother, Antonio, who is on the verge of being sucked into the black hole that is Jet City's drug world. How can Laz choose between being the star pitcher he has always dreamed of becoming and the team player his family needs?
