Peter and AJ had plans – they’d make the JV baseball team as freshmen playing together just as they always had. With one pitch everything changes for Peter.

Baseball has always been the most important thing for Peter until an injury and the surgery that follows takes him off the mound permanently. Suddenly he feels like he has no identity and what’s more, AJ just doesn’t seem to get it. When he wasn’t playing baseball Peter helped his grandfather, a professional photographer, so a photography class seems like an easy A. Angelika, the only other freshman in the class, seems to like him, but Pete doesn’t know how to act around her. Add to that the odd things that his grandfather is doing that nobody wants to talk about, and freshman year is getting way too complicated for Peter.
