CRAZY HORSE ELECTRIC GAME
New York : Dell, 1988.
IL YA RL 7.1 .
Crazy Horse Electric Game was the pinnacle of Willie's athletic career.
It was the last inning and he made the impossible catch and won the impossible
game. He was a hero ; no one in Coho, Montana would ever forget that game
-- or him. That was what he thought then. Just a few weeks later he was
water-skiing -- the last ride of the season and pushed his limit a little
too far. He flipped over, the tip of his ski hit his forehead and by the
time he got out of the hospital, Willie's body wasn't the finely-tuned
machine it had been. He called himself a troll and the cane his teammates
gave him to commemorate the Crazy Horse Electric Game wasn't just for decoration
-- he needed it. He really couldn't walk without it. Jenny, his girlfriend,
started going with another guy and his friends acted strange around him.
Then, when he heard his parents fighting, arguing about him, he realized
what a burden he'd become and he left. Alone, without telling anyone, he
got on a bus. He ended up in California. Maybe, just maybe, he can find
just one more chance to get his life back on track.
