Throwing Like A Girl Weezie Kerr Mackey

Throwing Like a Girl by Weezie Kerr Mackey 15 yr old Ella will be starting at a new school, in a new city (Dallas) in the middle of the school year. Ella must leave her best friends and the city (Chicago) she knows so well. One day Ella's teacher notices she's a natural athlete and suggest she try out for softball. This is the first time Ella has ever played softball, she's learning the game has she goes. Ella easily takes to softball and is determined to get better. I really enjoyed this book, the story moves very well Mackey's created a believable and likeable character in Ella. Mackey's writes an excellent game. It was a lot of fun watching Ella fall for the game of softball. 12up
