I recommend this book to any teenage athletes.
Angel is a high school baseball player, who has a real gift. After one of his games, Coach Benson tells him that several college scouts have been watching him. Angel is thrilled to have the opportunity to recieve a free college education. He knows his blue-collar, paycheck to paycheck family will not be able to afford college. But before the big showcase he starts to doubt his own abilities. He even contemplates not showing up.
