Darin was a top athlete until a poolside accident left him in a wheelchair. For the past two years, his girlfriend, Joy, and best friend, Jeremy, have stood by him even through his most bitter and abusive moods. But as Darin becomes increasingly demanding and dependent on alcohol, Joy and Jeremy turn to each other for friendship and solace. Matters get complicated when Joy gets pregnant with Jeremy’s child and wants to cut all ties to Jeremy, in the hopes of convincing Darin he is the father. “Ripslinger’s use of a female pitcher will pull in both the female and male softball fan. The view from Jeremy’s corner of this love/hate triangle and his knowledge of softball should keep both the non-sports and sports fan’s interest.”-VOYA
