Author(s): Des O'Leary

NZ Senior Fiction | NZ Book Awards for Children & Young Adults 2019 Shortlist

Life for Sione and his mates at Manawahe East High in South Auckland is pretty sweet - a slice of heaven. But one day when they are in after-school detention there's an emergency. Another school has turned up for a softball game but the Manawahe Junior Boys team has gone AWOL. Sione, TJ, Hieu, Jordan and the rest are hurriedly pulled out of detention and on to the field to form a replacement team, with Leilani in charge of the equipment. The problem is none of them can play and they don't really want to learn - at least not at first. Slice of Heaven is a novel about a bunch of young people surprised by sport that is pitch perfect, funny and packed with life as it's lived in South Auckland.
