As Trent Zimmerman struggles to move past a traumatic event that took place several months earlier, he befriends class outcast Fallon Little, who helps him understand that he can move on.

"Everyone says that middle school is awful, but Trent knows nothing could be worse than the year he had in fifth grade, when a freak accident on Cedar Lake left one kid dead, and Trent with a brain full of terrible thoughts he can't get rid of. Trent s pretty positive the entire disaster was his fault, so for him middle school feels like a fresh start, a chance to prove to everyone that he's not the horrible screw-up they seem to think he is. If only Trent could make that fresh start happen. It isn t until Trent gets caught up in the whirlwind that is Fallon Little the girl with the mysterious scar across her face that things begin to change. Because fresh starts aren t always easy. Even in baseball, when a fly ball gets lost in the sun, you have to remember to shift your position to find it."--From publisher.
