This book is about...

A kid named Josh who fractures a bone in his face, but has surgery and plays in a tournament in Cooperstown. Everything is going fine, until his best friend, a girl, Jaden befriends a baseball stars son, and does not care about Josh or his best friend Benji. This aggravates Josh and sometimes gets him off of his game.

A powerful part is...

When Josh says, "It's ok, just let her new boyfriend do it for her" This shows her jealousy of the superstars son.
