Book Summary:
Michael Arroyo has a pitching arm that throws heat. Newly orphaned after his father
led the family's escape from Cuba, Michael's only family is his seventeen year old brother Carlos.
If Social Services hears of their situation they will be separated in the foster care system
or worse they will be sent back to Cuba. Together the boys carry on alone, But then someone wonders
how a twelve year old boy could possibly throw with as much power as Michael Arroyo.
With no way to prove his age, no birth certificate, and no parent to fight for his cause,
Michael's secret world is blown wide open, and he discovers that family can come from the
most unexpected sources.
