Josh LeBlanc is back, but the U12 National Championship he helped win in the last book is proving to be more of a curse than a blessing. With new-found financial security, Josh’s dad has designs on a new home in a fancy neighborhood. Trouble begins when a pretty real estate agent sets her sights on Josh’s dad. With his parents talking about a break-up, Josh’s dad suggests that he spend the rest of the summer with a local Little League All-Star team in their quest to win the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. Josh’s dad says it’s Josh’s chance to play against the best of the best from all over the world. But is that the real reason, or are Josh’s dad and his new girlfriend trying to get him out of the way to make the breakup complete? As the series approaches, Josh worries that he may have to choose between the game of a lifetime and his family. Or, with the help of friends Jaden and Benji, can he somehow figure a way to do both?
