Henry “Biggie” Abbott is the son of a baseball legend from Finch, Iowa. But at an obese 300+ lbs 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, actually talks to 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 inspire him to try. What happens when Biggie steps out of the shadows of being invisible into the harsh glare of the high school spotlight?
