About the Book
Blake Simpson is a gifted twelve-year-old boy who loves to draw and paint. He dreams of being a successful artist one day.

Rocco Marciano is an all-star pitcher for his Little League team. His dream is to pitch in college and then move on to the majors.

Their fathers have different plans in mind for their sons, and they try to bully them down those alternative paths, paths that they had chosen for themselves many years ago. By forcing them to follow in their footsteps, they'd be living through the boys, attempting to fulfill their own dreams, especially the half-realized ones.

Blake and Rocco form a tight bond because of their common plight, and they strive to stand up to their iron-willed fathers once and for all.
