Little Brother of War (Pathfinders) by Gary Robinson
7th Generation

Summary: Sixteen-year-old Mississippi Choctaw Randy Cheska has lived most of his young life in the shadow of his older football-hero brother, Jack. After Jack is killed while serving in Iraq, Randy’s father puts even more pressure on Randy to excel in football. But Randy has no interest in sports and has never been good at them. Imagine Randy’s surprise when he discovers stickball, a game he’s immediately drawn to. But stickball is a sport Randy’s father considers a relic of the Choctaw past, when it was known as Little Brother of War and was used to settle disputes between communities. Randy’s determination to play this legendary game, guided by a mysterious visitor, leads him on a challenging and unexpected journey of self-discovery. — Cover image and summary via publisher website
