“Highly recommended.” – Publishers Weekly

Batting .400 for a Major League Baseball season? Absurd? Never again. Hitting .400 is the most sacred and secure mark in all sports, and will never be done again. Never by a superstar, and never, ever by a .259 lifetime guy like Paul Demeter. It’s the last month of the season, the world is watching; and promising 17-year-old journalist, Sylvia Kerrigan, knows if Demeter finishes at .400, some writer will nab the Great Story. Sylvia aims to be that writer.  She is young, but she’s not a kid.  She was tear-gassed at Occupy Tulsa, she had her stomach pumped at the OU/Texas Game, and she was assaulted hanging out with a friend.  Any other qualification?  Easy. This ballplayer chasing history, this unlikely hero who abandoned his family years ago, this Paul Demeter?  He’s her old man.
