Praise

“Ritter has crafted a work that is far beyond the ordinary. It’s about music and softball, dreams and passion, courage and loyalty and mysticism. The characters are eccentric and dynamic…. Even the language is multi-layered, mixing music, sport and street talk with soaring imagery. [T]ruly remarkable work. -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Ritter pulls out all the stops in developing his myth-heavy plot, but what really makes the book soar is his sense of place: the laid-back, hippie-influenced, communal spirit of the OB permeates every scene, offering stark contrast to the coldly commercial world toward which Andy aspires. As in his earlier work, Ritter melds style to content beautifully, telling his story in a hip, street-smart argot that perfectly matches Andy’s trumpet improvisations. Teen friendly, lots of fun, never preachy, but with plenty of thematic pizzazz.”— Booklist, starred review

“Satisfying.”—School Library Journal, starred review
