Prime-Time Pitcher is that kind of a story. Koby Caplin, main character, is doing great on the Monticello Middle School baseball team until he is interviewed by a TV newsman for a documentary. Now, with lots of attention Koby gets a swollen head. Soon thereafter, he forgets about teamwork, the baseball team starts to lose ball games, he nearly loses all his friends, and Monticello nearly blows the conference championship. Surely, everything appears to be going south.
Once again, Matt Christopher, gives readers a fast-paced, easy to read story with lots of action, and I like it. Marvin P. Ferguson, author of THE UNKNOWN BASEBALL PLAYER.
This book tries to tell you not to get all wrapped around yourself and not forget about your friends. This is a good book if you lost a friend, even if you're not a sports fan. This book is 138 pages long and is by Matt Christopher. He has written 37 other sports books for kids.
Koby Caplin is an 8th grader at Monticello Middle School and plays baseball there and he is a very good pitcher. A local news station wants to do a documentary on middle school athletics and they want to interview Koby. They have more than enough errors in the first game that is filmed on TV, Koby hopes every game they play doesn't end up like this one. He hates the things Sara is saying about him in the Monticello Middle School Newspaper, "The Megaphone." Can Koby handle the spotlight?
Try not to lose your friends but if you do this book would help you. If you like baseball you would like this book. In my opinion this is one of the best books I have ever read. I hope you like this book if you ever read it. I would give this book 4 ½ stars.
