Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Baseball player and superfan Quinnen must struggle to deal with her older sister's death in a story that unfolds between two summers.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 August #1
    Last summer, Quinnen thought she was losing her best friend and older sister, Haley, thanks to a new boyfriend. This summer, she and her family are still learning how to live without Haley after she was killed in a car crash. In chapters alternating between the months leading up to Haley's death and the present, when Quinnen has given up playing baseball, her favorite sport and pastime, Bishop lays out Quinnen's grief and guilt over losing her sister, as well as her friendship with a rookie pitcher her parents are hosting over the summer, a friendship that becomes instrumental in finding her way back to baseball. In addition to the appealing sports focus, Bishop's debut covers sisterhood, the struggles of coping with loss as a family, getting closure, and the power of kindness, among other things. Bishop's vivid writing and compassionate touch bring the characters to life, and a handy glossary of baseball terms will help readers less familiar with the sport. A sensitive, well-wrought novel perfect for both sports lovers and fans of character-driven stories. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
