20 odd years ago it wasn’t known that football players were affected by all the hard hits they took. Players can have headaches, become moody, and forgetful. This has happened to ZJ’s dad, a professional football player, and no one knows what’s going on or how to fix it. Jacqueline Woodson has written this beautiful poetic story about how family isn’t always blood and that music can bring you together in good times and bad.
