Things were peaceful at Vigor
High School that sophomore year. That is, until a Yankee showed up that this totally southern school! Jeana didn’t date
jocks, in fact, Jeana didn’t date. As far as Jeana was concerned brains (hers) and brawn (jocks), didn’t mix.
Wade was the biggest jerk, er, jock in school. When he wasn’t on the football field he was scoring dates with his sun
yellow corvette. Neither the football hero nor the ‘vette did a thing for Jeana. A visit to the batting cage would change
all that. For two quarters she met Mickey. He may be a jock but he was built like Adonis!
Odd that she didn’t
bring her schoolbooks home that night. Not only did her parents see the change, but so did Billy Joe. Remember these names!
This isn’t a football story, but it is a story of love, conflict and the resolution of long ago dreams. Wade, who has
loved Jeana since the early grades has more troubles than he lets on. Is it just because Mickey stole his girl, or is there
more to why Wade is the biggest jerk in school? Mickey may be a jock but he does not act like one. His one goal in life is
to play pro baseball to fulfill the dream his father had to forego. Exit sophomore year and enter the senior year.
Mickey was now the other
formidable player on the team. The games have gotten better but the rivalries worse. But, because Mickey defends Billie Joe
and because Billie Joe has always loved Jeana to, He becomes the best friend either of them ever had or ever will. The question
of who Jeana wants is totally clear, but that doesn’t stop the others from letting her know how they feel. It all comes
down to a poem Jeana wrote and read in grade school. Make sure to read the prologue first, it will make sense by her senior
Joyce Scarbrough has scored
not only the touchdown with True Blue but the point after. Follow Mickey and Jeana as they fend off the opposing team of lovers.
Read the follow up at the end to get the full story. This is not a book you’ll want to put down. Her writing is easygoing
and keeps your attention. On a scale of one to five this is at least a seven.
