  • Short Description
Connor Wells thought he was in for a fun summer of playing video games at home in Burlington, Ontario. But something has happened to his mother.
Connor Wells is looking forward to spending the whole summer parked on the couch with his video games, at home in Burlington, Ontario. Then something bad happens to his mother. Something really bad.
When he's sent to stay with relatives in Winnipeg, he finds they play baseball--all day, every day--and he doesn't play at all. Soon, however, he discovers a hidden talent that helps him both on the diamond and off.
Power Hitter shows how sport can help us understand even life's hardest experiences.
