    Reviewed by Jennifer Wardrip, aka "The Genius" for

    "The hot corner." In baseball, it's third base. So named because of the fact that you always have to be ready for anything, and no one knows it better than eighteen-year-old Scott Latimer. <BR/><BR/>Scott is the starting third baseman on Thompson High School's varsity baseball team. The Spokane All-City High School Tournament is coming up in a matter of days, so of course Scott is worried about how he'll handle himself on "the hot corner." <BR/><BR/>The only problem is that, as life has a way of doing, things in his personal life are a little messed up at the moment. His best friend, Travis, was recently kicked out of his house by his parents and has been staying with Scott and his dad. And that was fine, until Travis handed him a copy of the school newspaper, which contained an article entitled "Coming Out." <BR/><BR/>Now "the hot corner" isn't just on the baseball field, but everywhere Scott looks. He doesn't know what to do about his friendship with Travis. He especially doesn't know how to handle some of the things Travis has said to him, such as the fact that Scott has issues with being the son of divorced parents. During these next seven days, it's up to Scott to figure out how to make things right again -- both on the field and off of it. <BR/><BR/>Again, author Terry Trueman has taken a well-drawn character and put him into a realistic situation. This is another great read from one of my favorite authors, and I can guarantee you won't go wrong by picking up a copy.

    Good perspective from the other side.

    Ok I don't know what book that mom read but there was no sex, gay or straight at all in the book. The book offers a very unique perspective then most books about gay teens. It shows the coming out story through the eyes of his straight best friend. I enjoyed this fresh outlook, as it still deals with a lot of issue gay teen have to go through. And it's also a good baseball book.

    In this book it is nice beacuse I love baseball and this book is mostly about his girl friend and him. His girl friend is getting really mad at him beacuse he never spends anytime with her. So,she thinks he has to spened more time with her. And he is spending too much time on baseball. But he is saying that once I get into the major leagues we are going to be rich.

    Shocked mom

    My 12 yr. old son checked this out of the school library and was shocked by the subject matter and language. The review gives no indication that the true subject of the book is gay sex and it is pretty graphic.
