Henry "Biggie" Abbott is the son of one of Finch, Iowa 's most famous athletes. His father was a baseball legend and his step-dad is a close second. At an obese 300+ pounds though, Biggie himself prefers classroom success to sports. As a perfectionist, he doesn't understand why someone would be happy getting two hits in five trips to the plate. "Forty percent, that's an F in any class," he would say. As Biggie's junior year begins, the girl of his dreams, Annabelle Rivers, starts to flirt with him. Hundreds of people have told him to follow in his dad's footsteps and play ball, but Annabelle might be the one to actually convince him to try. What happens when a boy who has spent his life since fourth grade trying to remain invisible is suddenly thrust into the harsh glare of the high school spotlight?

I received this book for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Last year I said I wanted to read something different from what I always read. Not because I am bored of the romance/erotica, but because it’s always good a change, and Biggie was definitely a big change for me. First, because this book has so much baseball – way too much for my taste, hence the 3,5 stars. – Second, Henry, or Biggie, was the kind of character I’ve never read before. He’s a young kid who doesn’t want to be noticed. His insecurities and all his teenager experiences makes him a very likable character. And third, the story, this book has a very interesting plot, how one kid who has been trying to have his own identity all his life, decides to make a change and finally find himself. I totally loved his relationship with Anabelle. I think she was good for him, she encouraged him to take the first step, helped him launch to a better person.

I totally recommend this book, the story is so good that even if you don’t like baseball, like me, you’ll enjoy the book and love the characters.
