Twelve-year-old Zack is looking forward to the start of his final season in Little League. He begins the summer dreaming of something more than the third place finish his team seems to be destined to attain, yet again... and then he sees Rafer, leaning up against a tree, watching, but not joining the game. Zach knows right away that Rafer is different, but sets out to befriend him anyway. When he finds out that Rafer has a champion swing that just might be the Robins' ticket to the Little League championship, he sets out to include Rafer on the team, leading the other boys to do the same!
A Season of Miracles is funny and sweet. It is a story of patience, of creativity, of second - and third- chances, of faith, and of searching: searching for friendship, for acceptance, for success, and for the Truth. A Season of Miracles will make you laugh out loud. A Season of Miracles will make you cry. A Season of Miracles will leave you wondering, thinking, and searching. This is a story truly worth reading - even if you don't know how many periods... um... quarters... um... innings there are in a baseball game! What began as a nostalgic look back at the Little League days turned into a touching story of friendship and faith that I just can't recommend enough!
Special thanks to Cat Hoort, Trade Marketing Manager, Kregel Publications for sending me a review copy. The opinions expressed in this review are my own!
From the back cover: Looking back on the 1971 Little League season, Zack Ross relives the summer that changed his life...Gunning for the championship is all that matters until twelve-year-old Zack meets Rafer, a boy whose differences make him an outcast but whose abilities on the baseball field make him the key to victory. Admired for his contribution to the team, Rafer turns everyone's expectations upside down, bestowing a gift on Zack and his teammates that forces them to think, is there more to life than winning or losing? And what is this thing called grace?
Anyone remember the old television series, "The Wonder Years"? Zack Ross reminds me of the lead character from that show, maybe because Zack narrates the whole story of "A Season Of Miracles". Yes, this is a story about baseball, no denying it. However, you do not have to like baseball or know anything about it really to enjoy this book. It is a story about friendship. It is a story about understanding each other despite our differences. And it is a story about how we all have something unique to offer it is just a question of seeing it. Mr. Whitener has done an outstanding job with this book and I am so looking forward to the next one.

In 1971, Little League was everything to 12-year-old Zach Ross. When he and his friend Donnie notice their special needs classmate, Rafer, watching them practice, they decide to give the boy a chance to participate. They are astonished to discover that what Rafer lacks in speech capacity he makes up for in raw batting and baseball power. They recruit Rafer to join their team and with his help, the Little League championship seems within reach. Then tragedy strikes, and Zach, Donnie, Rafer, their parents and their community must find a way to navigate turbulent times and circumstances.
