In this emotional story of parental love, a single mother of a teenage baseball player who exhibits the batting eye of a professional athlete, tries to shield and protect her son from the world of over-zealous scouts, hard-nosed coaches, and money-hungry agents. Guided by his mother’s firm and steadfast wisdom and his extraordinary talent, both mother and son make it to the major leagues. In the end, The Youngest Hero reveals that when it comes to finding your way in life, a God-fearing mother is more important than God-given talent.

    " Story of forgiveness, love and focus on God's calling. Set in Chicago, and written from the perspective of the mom and her son. At times, the son seems unrealistically adult to be only 11 years old, but I've never met a child prodigy before either. An easy, enjoyable read. "

    " I'm a baseball fan and I've enjoyed many other Jenkins stories. So this combination made for a quick and entertaining read. I think it's enjoyable even if you don't like baseball because Jenkins makes you care about the main characters. "
