He is a Little League player with a pitching arm so good that rival Little League coaches ask about his birth certificate to prove he is only 12 and eligible to play. Adults wish to speak with his father about his birth certificate but Michael cannot let anyone know his father died several months prior because his brother Carlos is only 17 and they are trying to avoid foster care by not letting people know until Carlos is Michael is forbidden to play baseball until the birth certificate is presented.
The story is in first person and that affects the story because the reader experiences everything firsthand. A major event that changed the character was when Michael wos forbidden to play baseball after his birth certificate was not present that made Michael really Angry and Frustrated with his brother.
The title "Heat" relate to the book because when a pitcher is playing good he has a hot hand which is a sport term that means that the pitcher is playing really good. The narrator is reliable because he is telling the story nobody is telling the story for him.
He already experienced those events. A major symbol in the story is a baseball because earlier in the story Michael stops a theif by throwing a baseball a his back and knocking him down Michael also plays baseball so that is why a baseball is a major symbol in the story.
I was surprised when I found out that Michael was living alone with his brother. I was Angry when I found out that the League official had forbidden Michael from playing because he was really good. I was satisfied when the Yankee Pitcher came and helped Michael get his birth certificate and was able to play again.
My favorite part was when Michael stopped the thief by throwing the baseball to his back. One thing that I found interesting was that nobody knew where Michael and Carlos lived and the job that Carlos had did not even ask for his birth certificate which seemed unrealistic.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5 because it is the best sports novel I have ever read and it was also really interesting but in some part is did not seem realistic but overall it was a very good book.
