Out of Order

A novel by

Baseball. I'm very good at baseball. Baseball is the only part of my life I have any control over. Baseball is the only reason I'm still in school.

Problem: I'm not out on the field. I'm in here. There's no way you can think about baseball when your body's trapped in a hard chair in a quiet room, and you can't move at all. When you can't feel the shock of the bat running up your arm into your shoulder. When you can't feel the whump! of the ball in your glove.

When the girl you've been in love with since seventh grade walked off mad, and as usual she's going to stay that way till you crawl like a dog.

In this new novel from the acclaimed author of Damage, Colt Trammel's life is falling apart. His girlfriend has dumped him (again), and his mother has told him that unless he can raise his GPA to a C, she won't let him play baseball anymore. The next six weeks will test Colt in a way he's never been tested before, and how he gets through them is hilarious, poignant, and powerfully believable.
