About the book: 

When thirteen-year-old Sam Barrette's baseball coach tells her that her attitude's holding her back, she wants to hit him in the head with a line drive. Why shouldn't she have an attitude? As the only girl playing in the 13U league, she's had to listen to boys and people in the stands screaming things like, "Go play softball," all season. Her coach barely lets her play, even though she's one of the best hitters on the team.

All stakes now rest on Sam's performance at baseball training camp. But the moment she arrives, miscommunication sets the week up for potential disaster. Placed at the bottom with the weaker players, she will have to work her way up to A league, not just to show Coach that she can be the best team player possible, but to prove to herself that she can hold a bat with the All-Star boys.

  1. Sounds like a lovely book. Good luck with your blog tour!

  2. This sounds like a book my daughter would have liked when she was younger. She was also the only girl playing baseball with the boys, and several of the league coaches wouldn't take and said she should be playing softball. Fortunately her coach was wiser and recognized she had more talent than many of the boys, and more maturity than all of them.

    1. I'm so glad she found a good coach and was encouraged. Thank you for sharing her story.

  3. This sounds like a wonderful book. My grandson just started playing kid pitch and loves anything about baseball. I think he will be able to identify with the story. He has had to work extra hard to move up in batting order and many of the other kids are more experienced, but he's making great progress! Thanks for sharing this book on the Kid Lit Blog Hop!
