Annotation: Danny's tall and skinny. Even though he's not built, his arms are long enough to give his pitch a power so fierce any college scout would sign him on the spot. Ninety-five mile per hour fastball, but the boy's not even on a team. Every time he gets up on the mound he loses it.
But at his private school they don't expect much from him. Danny's half Mexican. And growing up in San Diego means everyone else knows exactly who he is before they find out he can't speak Spanish, and before they realize his mom has blond hair and blue eyes. And that's why he's spending the summer with his dad's family. To find himself, he might just have to face the demons he refuses to see right in front of his face.

Publisher Description:
DANNY'S TALL AND skinny. Even though he's not built, his arms are long enough to give his pitch a power so fierce any college scout would sign him on the spot. A 95 mph fastball, but the boy's not even on a team. Every time he gets up on the mound he loses it.
But at his private school, they don't expect much else from him. Danny's brown. Half-Mexican brown. And growing up in San Diego that close to the border means everyone else knows exactly who he is before he even opens his mouth. Before they find out he can't speak Spanish, and before they realize his mom has blond hair and blue eyes, they've got him pegged. Danny's convinced it's his whiteness that sent his father back to Mexico. And that's why he's spending the summer with his dad's family. Only, to find himself, he might just have to face the demons he refuses to see right in front of his face.
