it was amazing
bookshelves: middle-grade

I loved this book's honesty! The relationships between twelve year old Madison and her friends, between Madison and her mother, and between Madison and her first crush are all so solidly developed and truly felt. Added to that is the compelling story of Madison playing Little League Baseball with the boys in a mid-western town during the '80's. Newspaper reporters and camera crews follow every move Madison makes on the baseball field, but all she really wants is to be left alone to play ball. It is a real story about a real girl; an engaging read with emotional resonance that I would recommend to any tween and her mother.
