Synopsis

Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross

Seventeen-year-old track star Annie Lucas is too young to remember her dad's glory days as a Yankees pitcher. So when a family friend offers him a coaching position with the Kansas City Royals, Annie is intrigued by the idea of seeing the baseball side of her dad. Knowing that he'll be mentoring nineteen-year-old rookie phenom Jason Brody is just a bonus. After an awkward first meeting with Brody involving a towel, very little clothing, and a much-too-personal locker room interview, Annie's convinced she knows his type-arrogant, bossy, and most likely not into high school girls. But as he and her father grow closer, Annie starts to see through his facade to the lonely boy in over his head beneath. Falling for an up-and-coming superstar sucks. Except she's getting hints from Brody that maybe this crush isn't one-sided after all. When opening day comes around and her dad-and Brody's-job is on the line, she's reminded why he's off-limits. But Brody needs her, and staying away isn't an option.
