Peter is a star pitcher hoping to make the JV team as a freshman, but all those games that he played through the pain have left his elbow in a bad state. He doesn’t know what to do with his time after the career-ending surgery other than feel sorry for himself and think about his best friend AJ making the team. When he meets Angelika in his photography class, things start looking up. Peter is familiar with cameras and photography due to watching and assisting his grandfather, a very well-known wedding photographer. Grandpa has recently started forgetting things and Angelika suggests that he may have Alzheimer’s, a disease which her grandmother had. There is no offensive language or sexual content but Peter does drink alcoholic fruit punch at a party, gets sick, and has a hangover the next day. This story has many elements which teens will relate to—sweet romance, having their dreams crushed, sadness at seeing the physical decline of a family member. Another winner by Sonnenblick.

    I feel like the loss of Peter's pitching days wasn't enforced as much as it should've been, so I did not enjoy this book as much as the other novels of Jordan Sonnenblick. Otherwise, it was pretty good, but not as moving as I thought it would be.
