Harrison has led a hard-knock life up until he’s taken in by loving foster parents “Coach” and Jennifer.After he inadvertently causes the man’s death, Harrison is taken from a brutal foster home run by a farmer who uses foster kids as unpaid labor, a situation blithely ignored by the county. His new foster parents are different. Coach is in charge of the middle school football team, and all 13-year-old Harrison has ever wanted to do is to play football, the perfect outlet for his seething undercurrent of anger at life. Oversize for his age, he’s brilliant at the game but also over-the-top aggressive, until a hit makes his knee start aching and then life deals him another devastating blow. The pain isn't an injury but bone cancer.
