Heat by Mike Lupica

A book review by Faith Thompson

 

Michael is twelve years old and has no birth certificate to prove it. He has the best pitching arm anybody in the Little League has ever seen – which is why the rival coaches suspect that he is lying about his age and is actually much older.

Michael’s coach, downstairs neighbor, best friends, and brother Carlos all know that he isn’t lying. But with his dad dead, Michael has no way to prove his age and that may take him out of the game. Unless they can get his birth certificate from Cuba in time for the championship game. And he and Carlos are ready to try.
