There's No Base Like Home

Illustrated by: Ruth McNally Barshaw
Age Level: 9-12
This is going to be twelve-year-old Sophia Maria Garcia's best year ever: she's going out for the same softball team on which her high-school softball star sister played at her age, and she s starting middle school. New school, new Sophia! But all does not go according to plan. Sophia does not make the Waves softball team, and making friends at her new school does not go well. Maybe Sophia isn't the pitcher she thought she might be. And her best friend is drifting away, getting interested in boys and losing interest in Sophia.
