About this title
Five-year-old Tim Jacobson's life takes a sudden turn when he is separated from his infant sister and is taken to live with his aunt, uncle and two children. Deprived of love and comfort while growing up, the boy feels alienated, always the outsider. Blessed with athletic ability and nick-named the Omaha Kid,Tim turns to sports as his salvation. While professional baseball and later tennis become the backdrop of the story, like "Friday Night Lights", "The Tennis Partner" and "The Art of Fielding" complex characters and themes are found between the covers. The Adventures of the Omaha Kid's odyssey takes him to a world of adventure, romance and travel. Can he avoid the sirens' calls' to find love and a place to call home. Danger lurks just over the next horizon.About the Author:
