Desperate is the operative word for Nick Steeler, a Texas high school all-star baseball player whose senior baseball record has taken a nose-dive. He wants big league baseball, but hasn't even had a hint of an offer. All his buddies and his girl know what they're going to do after graduation and he hasn't a clue. His eccentric, magical Aunt Jessie urges him to go to Iowa -- Wolf Creek, Iowa, of all places! But what he finds wildly whips him back to the 1950's, to the bare bones of baseball and an unexpected romance. So now should he tell his girl he's a time travel guy? Will he lose her? And what about baseball? Add a surprise ending to all this and Sweet Summer is a good read anytime of the year.
