Eddie Ball lives in a trailer park in Louisiana with his widowed mother. His friend, Annie Stokely, lives there with her widowed father. Both mother and father work in the Finkle Foods factory, where most everyone in town works. A finkle is a candy delicacy, ok junk food, that was invented by a Mr. Finkle. The company needs to boost sales, so as a PR ploy, they sponsor a contest during NBA finals--sink a free throw and win a million dollars. Eddie, with the help of Annie and her father, wins the chance to make that throw. Johnny Heller is amazing in his ability to sound like an adolescent. Eddie is a character filled with juvenile anxiety and energy. Heller adroitly captures all these qualities in this wonderful satiric tale. M.T.F.
