7 Days at the Hot Corner by Terry Trueman
Scott is a baseball hotshot at his high school -- whose best friend of many years turns out to be gay. This is the fast moving story of the seven days since Scott learns of it and how he deals with the most agonizing week he's known. I'm glad to see a topic like this covered in a book with strong boy appeal (I learned all sorts of stuff about baseball), but I don't think it's award-worthy. NAY for me.
