    8. I am not into baseball at all This was ARC for me The first chapter I wasn t sure I was going to be able to get into this book I was surprised as I went into the second chapter that it was not just baseball but relationships and learning to pick yourself up and move on with life Jet had a lot of hurt in his life and a lot of life lessons learned It was a great read.
