Description of this Book

Life for Sione and his mates at Manawahe East High in South Auckland is pretty sweet - a slice
of heaven. But one day when they're in after-school detention there's an emergency. Another school's turned up for a softball game but the Manawahe junior boys team has gone awol.
Sione, TJ, Hieu, Jordan and the rest are hurriedly pulled out of detention and onto the field to form a replacement team, with Leilani in charge of the equipment. The problem is none of them can play and they don't really want to learn ... at least not at first.
