In the small town of Gilead, the only thing that connects the families are their shared love of the sport of baseball. When seventeen-year-old pitcher Max Gilead is drafted by the major league team in nearby Chicago, the town's hopes and expectations are high. But when Max returns home after his first season, he's not the same boy they knew. He's changed, and not just because he's a professional ballplayer now. Gilead has welcomed a new baseball team, the Chicago Smithereens, and Max is their star player. With the world at his feet, Max finds himself struggling to balance his new life with the old one. As Gilead falls apart, Max must come to terms with the choices he's made and the cost of success.

Smithereens is the story of a small town's love and bond with their hometown hero, as he tries to find his way after years of sacrifice and success. It; 8vo.
