Can Marnie pitch for the boy's baseball team and field an unexpected crush without striking out at the game - and in love?
Age range 14 to 17
Marnie has never had a hard time fitting in with the guys. It'll take a lot more than their goofy antics to keep her from joining them at the neighborhood sandlot to do what she loves best: play ball.
Among the guys is Cody, the school's star pitcher and Marnie's best friend. When he gets nailed in the arm by a bone-fracturing pitch, Marnie is the team's best chance at making it to the playoffs. But no one seems to have told the guys they're supposed to be on her side. With her own team against her, Marnie begins questioning her abilities. Can she play without losing the game, Cody-and herself?

"[A] compelling love story with an authentic sports setting and identifiable teen characters." - School Library Connection "The novel offers a nice look at girls in sports, with lots of detailed baseball scenes. Additionally, the story gains some depth as it incorporates the complications and confusion of growing up, namely new expectations and the changing nature of friendships. Lee's debut rests comfortably with sports-themed novels such as Catherine Gilbert Murdock's Dairy Queen (2006) and Miranda Kenneally's Stealing Parker (2012)." - Booklist
