Posted March 5th, 2014 @ 8:29am

Dan had to help out one of our sister stations and call a high school tournament basketball game last night, so Christina Wolford sat in for Dan Wednesday morning, and let Dan get some much needed beauty sleep.

On the show today, we talked to author Jonathan Curelop about his new Novel Tanker 10.  

The coming-of-age story shows what a bullied child goes through, and how a love of baseball became his salvation.  Shy and overweight Jimmy LaPlante, is an easy target for malicious pranks by older brother Cliff and his friends.  When Jimmy finally stands up to his brother, the fight sends Jimmy to the hospital with an injury that changes the trajectory of his life.  After physically recovering, Jimmy finds escape through a strict regimen baseball and training as he struggles to mend his psychological injuries.  By the time he reaches high school and college, Jimmy is am up-and-coming right fielder on the baseball team – no longer the fat kid who only wants to read books.  Yet despite his successes, Jimmy remains ill at ease with himself, and grapples with finding his place with family, his friends, in love, and with his older brother Cliff.
