The Only Game
Jack loves baseball but just when a new season is starting he decides to quit. No one understands his decision - parents, teammates, best friend - but it is something Jack feels he needs to do - to atone for his brother's death in some way.
This particular conflict is resolved in the first half of the book. After that it is a story of Jack, Cassie, Teddy and the sport they love, friendship, and second chances.
In a way I wish the first conflict had carried on a bit longer but this story had a lot of heart. I am not much for baseball so some of the play action got too involved for me but for a sports enthusiast this will be a good book.
