"Throwing Like A Girl" by Weezie Kerr Mackey

I liked Throwing Like A Girl by Weezie Kerr Mackey because I like softball and enjoyed the emphasis on how being on the team helped 15-year-old Ella make friends and become more confident. Ella, moved to Dallas from Chicago late in the school year and made friends by joining the softball team in spite of not having played before. This is a wholesome book that deals with Ella's adjusting to a new school in a new town. It's a story about a nice teenager and how she deals with friendship, parents, learning a sport and romance. A great read for young readers that challenges them to put themselves "out there" and to see what happens. I recommend this to pre-teens, teens and anyone who enjoys reading about high school sports.
