This was a really quick read that I enjoyed. The best parts were the ones that focused on Peter and his grandfather because of all the raw emotion. I was able to relate to those moments so much especially towards the end of the book. ( )

Sonnenblick really hit my heart with this book pete is a born natural baseball pitcher. He and his best friend AJ are a team with AJ catching. Pete has secrets. One that becomes apparent early in the book us that something is wrong with his elbow. Instead of resting it, telling his parents or seeking medical attention, he keeps sending curveballs and fast balls across the plate, ignoring the growing spin, until, one pitch, sends his body down into the pirate. The outcome, pete will never pitch again. In fact he has to learn to do simple basic tasks again. His next secret involves his grandpa who is a well known professional photographer. Pete and his grandpa are close and he has taught bus grandson the business. After pete ends up un a beginning photography class, the teacher accuses him of trying to get sn easy A, so sends he and another freshman Angelica to the advanced class. Now pete is making a name for himself in high school, not because of baseball, but his knowledge send talent for photography. Pete notices grandpa is blanking out and forgetting basic things. It's getting progressively worse and grandpa realizes this and begs pete not to tell his mother. He jeeps the secret, but doing that does not help grandpa. It's a beautiful story of family, love and friendship. It is heartbreaking to see grandpa fall out of life as Alzheimer's consumes his full, active past. ( )

Sometimes life doesn't take you on the path that you planned. That is what high school freshman, Peter Friedman finds out when a sports injury takes him out of his role as star pitcher and forces him to search within himself to find out what else defines him. ( )

How do you deal with the disappointment that you won't be the star athlete on your high school team? Especially when it results from an injury that you can't come back from? For Peter, he turns to photography, an interest he's shared with his grandfather for most of his life. Peter finds he can participate in a different way by photographing the sport he once loved to play. But just as Peter's starting this, his grandfather begins to exhibit some weird behavior--giving Peter all his gear, forgetting things, and sometimes spacing out. Peter has to decide whether to obey his grandfather and say nothing or protect him by telling his parents. ( )

The very first thing I can remember is this: I am really, really mad at my mom for some reason. I'm sitting in the middle of the living room, arms crossed, pouting.
