Reviews

"Insightful, provocative, and laugh-out-loud funny. . . . An inside-out look at high school sports." -- Pete Hautman, National Book Award winner for "Godless"

"Phil Bildner's screwball comedy sings with wit and originality and a refreshingly frank and funny exploration of bias and discrimination against gays. Like Darcy Miller's magical pitching arm, it sinks a fastball straight into your heart." -- Tracy Mack, author of "Birdland"
