"A story that delivers baseball action along with a rich psychological portrait, told through a compelling first person narration."&nbsp - School Library Journal

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Shane Hunter had everything going for him-a well-to-do family, lots of friends, and a coveted position as the star pitcher on his high school baseball team. But then in the spring of his sophomore year, a terrible tragedy turns his life of privilege upside down. With everything around him in shambles, Shane's not sure he wants to pitch ever again. But maybe the game he once loved could be the thing that saves him.

Editorial Reviews

A story that delivers baseball action along with a rich psychological portrait, told through a compelling first-person narration." - School Library Journal " High Heat joins the Deuker canon with yet another fine study of a conflicted soul whose ethical salvation is determined in a sporting arena, and once more readers are left to ponder whether a tainted success loses its sweet savor." - Bulletin "Deuker fills the page with dozens of exciting play-by-play sequences; these serve not only to move the story along chronologically, but also act as the metronome for Shane's personal story of loss, recovery and renewal." - Publishers Weekly "There's enough taut sports action here to satisfy the most avid fan." - Booklist "[Deuker] creates another captivating story. Readers will think they are sitting in the front row with a Cracker Jack box and a Coke . . . do not let this one slip past." - VOYA "
