JoJo is a girl that I could relate to. This girl is a determind and I can take a challange kinda girl. JoJo reminds me of myself.I love to write and my English teacher didn't want to have me in this writing contest. So instead of entering a writing contest I decided to write letters to friends form different places. They may not understand them half the time but they really enjoy it and I can't wait to see their faces someday when I meet them! Instead of a writing contest, It's baseball for Joel...
I learned it is hard to move to a different school because a lot of things change. I also learned most of the things change for the best and if not, then you can change things if you really have to. This book inspired me because its about a girl who knows what she likes and she stands up for herself. It's good that she likes baseball; we should get more girls into baseball.
The book I read for our fourth quarter was Sliding Into Home by Dori Hillestad Butler. Anyone who is interested in books with sports would enjoy this book. Throughout the book Butler uses great detail causing you feel how the characters feel experiencing what the character is feeling. I was personally affected by this book in a positive way because it got confusing at times but began to understand it more and more. The author added a lot of detail to the book so it was easier to understand which...

hile this is a book for young adults I found it to be an interesting read about one of my favorite sports and the determination of girls. Before giving books to young readers I typically try to read them. i was not disappointed.
Every bit of this book was predictable.
Joelle comes from a baseball family and has always played baseball herself, but when her family moves to Iowa, she's informed that girls are not allowed to play baseball in her school district; their only option is softball. Joelle is furious and frustrated because the sports are not the same, and she's tired of everyone telling her she should just play softball and get over it. She's not about to take softball for an answer, though, and sets out to find a way she can play her favorite sport. Al...

Joelle Cunningham has just moved from Minneapolis to Greendale, Iowa. She plays baseball and would rather play it than any other game, even softball. But in Greendale there are no baseball teams for girls and Joelle is out to change that. When she can’t change the school board she starts her own all girl league - but it’s easier said than done!
very good for people who like to play sports. it is about a girl that wants to play baseball but the girls at her school play softball because the school only lets girls play softball and boys play softball. Does she get to play baseball? You can only find out if you read the book. so read it, it is good
This is a book about a girl who wants to play baseball at her school but she isn't allowed to. So she tries to make an all girls baseball league. This book also has everday conflicts like friendship problems and school popularity!
