Softball Surprise (Jake Maddox)

We rated this book:


Softball Surprise is the story of a girl named Jo and how she is always on a losing team. But when she finds out that the team that always wins is handpicked of only the best players and coaches, she is shocked. When Jo is picked to substitute for the shortstop on the winning team who broke her finger, she has to choose between a guaranteed win with the new team, or risk the chance of losing with the team she has come to love. I liked this book because I play softball so I can understand Jo’s dilemma; it’s not fun to lose. I also liked it because it’s a story about a girl that could have had a sure thing, but chose to go with her heart, and what she felt was right. Softball Surprise is a book that says you should always go with the thing you love, that it is okay to take chances. I also liked the glossary of softball terms in the back. It would be helpful to someone who doesn’t play. A definite five star book, I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series!
