Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jill Cafferty...walks a fine line between fitting in and asserting her own personality. ...the third-person narration allows readers to hear her silent inner voice, often ironic or humorous...Go girl.” (Kirkus)

“The pleasure of reading this novel comes from the steady, realistic portrayal of Jill’s experience as a rookie and as a young woman breaking into a man’s sports. An ensemble of well-drawn, interesting characters revolves around Jill...Readers will hope for sequels tot this unusual and engaging novel.” (Booklist)

“Jill navigates the tricky waters of displaying her expertise in a male-dominated sport. …Jill is a strong, centered, and witty character, and it’s refreshing to read her smart comebacks to blatant sexism. …a good candidate for collections needing more positive depictions of characters who advocate against gender bias.” (School Library Journal)

“White imbues Jill with a fully credible mix of steely resolve, stealthy sense of humor, carefully repressed rage against her naysayers…players in the pipeline wonder when women will get their chance; now these readers can ponder whether the first pro experience will be a lot like this.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review))

“Jill’s desire to do her job without being stereotyped or bullied will resonate with readers in this unique and engaging novel. Recommend this to readers looking for stories about overcoming obstacles, like gender bias, as well as anyone who has an interest in baseball.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“White’s third-person limited narrative, told from Jill’s perspective, pulls the reader into her story. ...there’s plenty of action, and fans of the game will enjoy following Jill through early missteps toward a surer sense of herself and her skills.” (Horn Book Magazine)
