Jack is one of the best baseball players in the game. All of a sudden he quits playing baseball. Will his friends get him back into the game before his team goes off to the little league world series?


This book helps you get through a lot. If you quit something it doesn't mean have to quit it forever. Do not let something influence you just because you think it is the right thing to do.
