On the outside, Nicky Palmieri is just a little different from the average kid who loves baseball. Several surgeries on his cleft palate have left noticeable bumps and scars on his lip. He desperately wants to look like the other kids, but the doctors' empty words and promises set bad examples about lying.
On the inside, Nicky dreams of reaching the big leagues. His baseball glove-an expensive professional model-is an extension of his hand. Nicky knows where his glove is at all times, until one day when he secretly places his prized possession in an unusual place. When his family and closest friends ask him about the glove's whereabouts, a long string of lies follows. Most are harmless little fibs, but one falsehood leads to a catastrophe that changes Nicky's life forever.
Join Nicky and the Kelsey Avenue Crew for a series of wild events that teaches him about the power of truth.
