Overview


Darin was a top athlete until a poolside accident left him in a wheelchair. For the past two years, his girlfriend, Joy, and best friend, Jeremy, have stood by him even through his most bitter and abusive moods. But as Darin becomes increasingly demanding and dependent on alcohol, Joy and Jeremy turn to each other for friendship and solace. Matters get complicated when Joy gets pregnant with Jeremy’s child and wants to cut all ties to Jeremy, in the hopes of convincing Darin he is the father. “Ripslinger’s use of a female pitcher will pull in both the female and male softball fan. The view from Jeremy’s corner of this love/hate triangle and his knowledge of softball should keep both the non-sports and sports fan’s interest.”--VOYA

Editorial Reviews

The ALAN Review - Kay Parks Bushman
As its title suggests, this novel deals with a very complicated love triangle focusing on three high-school graduates who have been friends since grade school. Although Joy and Jeremy are deeply involved with each other, they have vowed to keep their relationship a secret from Darin, who believes that Joy will follow him to college and eventually marry him. Darin's hold on Joy is based on a tragic accident in which he becomes paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. When Joy becomes pregnant with Jeremy's child, the truth is revealed when Joy is injured in the state championship softball game. This novel should capture the interest of mature teens. The sports action in the story should entertain fans of girls' softball.

I know many high school students that hate reading, but they loved this book. The book held their interest, and it was never a struggle to get them to read it. The characters in the story were very real to them. They felt as though they knew the three friends.
