"Rabbit" Labelle excels at high school sports, despite being five-nothin', hundred-nothin' and in way over his head after his family moves from their small rural town to the big, bad city of "Lynn, Lynn, City of Sin."
Rabbit just wants to play ball and navigate the murky waters of his first romance. But as the tumultuous events of the late 1960s shake the country, prejudice in the community, the school, and even at home force him to confront his own principles and stand up for what he believes in.
Even if it means risking the thing he loves the most.
The impact of his choices will change everyone around him.
Offside, the first book in this powerful trilogy, has been selected as summer reading for multiple high schools.
Now, for the first time, all three books are available in this omnibus edition, which includes an exclusive essay by the author about how Rabbit and the stories came to be written.
