About the Author
"Not just a baseball story, this reading level 4.2 book also addresses the issues of bullying in person and online, belonging, grief and persistence. The hero Kal is a strong, athletic girl who loves baseball so much that she tries harder and harder in the face of bullying...
The book is totally up to date as the teens have cellphones and laptops to use Instagram and Snapchat to hurt others. The dialogue is realistic for the age group, lively and effective as it moves the action along...The fluid, transitory way in which this age group enters into and drifts out of relationships is very well done in this book.
Although baseball is central to the story and the baseball scenes are full of action and drama, all teens will be drawn to the personal drama of how the characters win friends and influence people."
