Heat+, the new book from Mike Lupica (author of Travel Team).
The book is about a young boy who dreams of pitching in the Little League World Series and beyond in the[major leagues|http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/index]. The boy is a Cuban refugee who faces serious life struggles (death, deception, dating), including rumors that he is older than he claims. His league forces him to be benched until he can present a birth certificate (sounds familiar). Will he fulfill his dream?
