Can Fran pull her game together before it's too late?

Fran Cullers is having a horrible summer. She was a star player on the Little League team in her old town, so the Highwater Hardwares should be thrilled to have her-except that they hate girls. She can run rings a

My 13th Season by Kristi Roberts
My 13th Season is a book about a girl named Francine who goes by Franny. She is a 13-year-old girl that is having a rough summer. She wanted this 13th season of baseball to be the best one she’s had! She was always dedicated to baseball, and made it her life. She dreamed of being a famous baseball player until her 13th season, that’s when it all went downhill. Her mother died in a car accident and her father J.J. is depressed horribly and never really comes around

The book My 13th Season was a good book. I thought the book was going to be very boring because I really don't baseball but when I got to the middle of the book it started to get interesting. I think the book My 13th Season should have a series to go with it.
The book takes place in a baseball field and at Fran's house. Fran is a girl that loves baseball but she doesn't like to play it because she is not good at it. She doesn't like her coach because he's only mean only to her. After a while th

First, I have to say that I was gravitated toward this book mostly because of my love for a good ball game. I had really underestimated this book when I got it. I thought it would be just another one of those books that had just enough to keep me reading but, when I finished the first chapter I was extremely compelled to read to the end. It has great humor, a well written plot and had the perfect ending.

This was about how Fran got emotionally stuck with everything in her life and had to find a way to deal with them all. She played baseball and was having trouble with the kids on her team and the coach but finds a way to overcome everything. It was very inspiring to me how she figured things out and had the strength to do it.
I love baseball books, and I especially love girls in baseball books. This one was okay. It ended a little abrupt, and some of the imaginings in the main character's head were difficult to follow. But it was a good look at some of the challenges girls who want to play baseball may have to face.

I thought this was a really good book, I could relate to a lot of the things that Fran had going on her life I could relate to because she is around my age. And she also likes the game of baseball, or in my case, softball.
