Summary

In the moving and compelling debut novel from Benjamin Zephaniah, a young man's life is completely changed when his face is badly scarred in a car accident.  
 
Martin seems to have it all. He's cool, funny, and he's the undisputed leader of the Gang of Three, who roam their East London estate during the holidays looking for fun. But one night after the Gang leave a late night rap club, Martin accepts a ride from Pete, a Raider's Posse gang member. Too late, he realises that the car is stolen, and that the police are after them.  
 
What happens next will change Martin's life and looks, and show him the true meaning of strength, courage, discrimination and friendship.

    STRIKE ONE 
         Days before the biggest game of playboy pitcher Maverick Jansen's career, his brother is killed in a horrific car accident. Determined not to let his teammates down, Mav pushes through his grief only to lose control of his signature pitch-and the series.   
     
    STRIKE TWO 
         Still dealing with the backlash of his once adoring fans, Maverick learns the team's owner plans to move the ball club to small town America. During a night of hard drinking Mav rails against the move to Hicksville while a fan records the entire tirade. His career takes a nosedive when the video goes viral right before spring training.   
     
         Kelsey Sullivan, Media Consultant, returns to her hometown of Pineville, Idaho after a former client implicates her in a drug cover-up.  Kelsey is hired by the team's owner to help restore Maverick's image and find a way to get back his mojo. As the daughter of a minor league ball player who walked away from her and her unstable mother, Kelsey breaks her main client rule-no athletes-to restore her own tarnished image.

          Maverick knows what they have is more than just soul-shattering sex, but he'll have to overcome his fear of commitment to prove to Kelsey love can save them both. But once burned, twice shy Kelsey might not be able to trust again, unless she can bury her long-held belief that this bad boy baseball player isn't the happily-ever-after type.
