I learned a lot about the history of women ball players from just this book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a nice read.

    I really like this book. It is very inspiring for kids. Even though it is a fictional book, there are some people that they mention who are real people. It gives a good description of how Katy ,the main character, controls her anger and sadness in a good way. Katy really takes action in the book and really digs deep for information, and it really shows that she cares for baseball. I definitely would recommend it.

    Katy was faced with a fairness issue. I really loved the fact that she used research and wrote repeated letters to try to promote change. She was an active voice for change. Are there any issues that you feel you could actively speak up for positive change? What are they?
