I'm a former softball player (played for 15 years) and I can't tell you how much I loved this book! It was a blast from the past and brought back memories from some of the best times in my life. A MUST READ FOR ANY SOFTBALL PLAYER/LOVER!
This is a wonderful story with competitive grit, true sportsmanship and an inspirational message! I loved the character development, especially the spirit and unwavering friendship of the catcher! Couldn't put the book down and can't wait for the sequel!
What a great read! I think it was written for girls who play the sport, but moms and dads will like it as well. I think every parent (and kid) who plays sports should read it! Great story! Great characters! Great fun! And wow! What a finish!Release Point
Release Point was a GREAT read!!!! Being a former KU pitcher who also pitched in the barn, it brought back lots of memories. I especially liked how determined and competitive the characters were and how their teams and town rallied behind them. What a wonderful book for young players to read to not only be inspired by the characters dedication and work ethic but also by the development of sportsmanship and respect. What a nail biting ending. I'm looking forward to the sequel. Tracy Willis, University of Kansas
My softball player daughter who has read many books has said this is her favorite book of all time. I had to read it and agree--a great book! It not only focuses on softball, but also teaches the importance of teamwork, dedication, and being a good sport on and off the field. We cannot wait for the sequel!
