17-year-old Mickey Tussler is a pitching prodigy who joins the Milwaukee Brewers. He’s managed to excel in the sport despite his autism, which angers his cruel father and invites his teammates’ mean jokes. Once in the minors, he sparks a rivalry with another pitcher. Fortunately, he has Arthur Murphy, the team’s manager (and the novel’s narrator), on his side.
Jeremy Arthur brings his rich voice to an empathetic performance of a YA novel that will touch hearts of all ages.
An honest and knowledgeable book about overcoming adversity, and the basis for the television movie A Mile in His Shoes, Mickey’s powerful story shows that with support and determination anyone can be triumphant, even when the odds are stacked against him.
