Everyone deserves a second chance.
Jack "The Cannon" Kennedy thinks he's living the American Dream. A fancy house in the Houston suburbs. A promising career. And a loving wife who tolerates his long hours and selfish ways.
In one horrific instant, he loses his wife. Then his job. Then his hope. And that just leaves Kellen, the young son Jack hardly knows or understands.
Jack realizes he must reconnect with Kellen or they'll never get past their shared grief. But Jack's biggest obstacle is staring back from the mirror.
Desperate to reach Kellen, he turns to baseball, the game he once loved. With Jack, a win-at-all-costs former star pitcher, coaching his son's Little League team, what could possibly go wrong?

Predictable? Pretty much. Charming? Definitely!
I really liked the baseball overlay to the plot of the story. This wasn't just a story about a dad and son, or of the ups and downs of building a relationship. The baseball element gave the book depth that it wouldn't have had otherwise.
Well, the whole set-up is fairly predictable so I'm not sure how to change it. It was pretty enjoyable just as it was…thanks mostly to the narrator.
I love this narrator. I really felt the child-like innocence of Kellin in his voice. Mr. Hoyt is able to evoke such emotion in all the major characters.
I started this book on a 5 hour drive and I honestly didn't know how long it was. I was literally disappointed when I reached my destination and had to end the day of listening. And, I was quite happy to get in my car less than 24 hours later to drive home because I knew this book was waiting for me. While I thought the story was predictable, I really thought Mr. Hoyt brought the characters to life.
