From the Publisher:
Tucker Thompson is just an ordinary 8th grader from Detroit, Michigan. He loves school and baseball. Everything seems great for the left-handed pitcher with a big, breaking curveball.
That is, until one dreadful event changes his life. Tucker learns that his parents are getting divorced. If that wasn’t bad enough, his mom is making a move. He will be forced to attend a new school, across town in the inner city of Detroit.
