      This book was received from Netgalley for an honest review.Gnash is mistreated at home and a little bit at school: "If someone did something wrong and Gnash was nearby, teachers just assumed it was him." He's an angry kid and a bit of a bully himself. When Jock joins his baseball team, he finds a good target. Not only is Jock gay and very good at the game (both offensive to Gnash), he's also angry. While Gnash is mad at everyone, Jock focuses his attitude on the homophobic. It seems justifiable [...]
