Home Run

I received a copy of Home Run by Travis Thrasher from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Baseball star Cory Brand knows how to win. But off the field, he’s spiraling out of control. Haunted by old wounds and regrets, his future seems as hopeless as his past. Until one moment—one mistake—changes everything. To save his career, Cory must go back to the town where it all began. His plan is simple: coach the local Little League baseball team, complete a recovery program, and get out as fast as possible. Instead, he runs headfirst into memories he can’t escape ... and the love he left behind. Faced with a second chance he never expected, Cory embarks on a journey of faith, transformation and redemption. And along the way, he discovers a powerful truth: No one is beyond the healing of God.
This was a really good book.  I would have liked to had to know more of what happens with Cory and his family at the end.  It kind of left things up in the air.  Cory seemed to me to be the typical great athlete - arrogant and self centered.  It's nice to know there are people out there like J. T. that have the heart for broken people and can get through to them.  If it wasn't for J. T.'s friendship I don't think Cory would have come around.
