This is a fun book for tweens and teens. Like all of the Softball Star series, it is a quick, easy read, and it is filled with softball and baseball action. The parts I liked the most however are the parts about Brooke and the two boys she likes (Jamie and Alex). I couldn't wait to see who she ended up with at the end.

This book is not just for softball fans. It has lots of other stuff, including a love triangle with Brooke and two of the hottest boys on her team. I couldn't wait to find out who she would end up with. Teen girls will like this story.

This book is great. It shows how amazing girls can be, if they are given a chance. It was inspired by the girl on the cover, who is a fastpitch player from Seattle.
