Game Seven

Paul Volponi

Sixteen year-old Julio has a complicated relationship with his dad—he resents him, and admires him. Julio’s dad left them behind in Cuba, and is living in America as the relief pitcher for the Miami Marlins. As a good baseball player, Julio is following in his father’s footsteps—when he gets a chance to go to America, will he follow those footsteps, too? It’s a dangerous journey.


Volponi is a master of writing about sports, and his characters are vivid and so real to life. This is just a great, great book.
