Recommended for: 7th grade and up
Read in May, 2009

The Chicago Cubs were a main part of the plot. I wonder if that was the reason it was a selection for Chicago Battle of the Books. It was otherwise a pretty ho-hum high school romance. Good, but I wasn't a huge fan of her writing style. I felt like I was reading as an outsider, analyzing the author's choices, rather than just being sucked into the plot. With such an emphasis on sports (and tons of stats on the Cubs), I wished it had been told from the boy's perspective because I could have sold it to a much wider audience of 7th and 8th graders.
