There’s No Base Like Home
Sophia just started middle school, and she is learning how different middle school can be. Sophia wants to be just like her older sister. Ellie. Ellie is a pitcher on the Moorpark High School softball team. When Ellie was in middle school, she played for the school’s team, called The Waves, so Sophia really wants to be on the Waves too. Even though she tries her best, Sophia doesn’t make the Waves, and she’s disappointed. Softball is not as easy for Sophia as it is for Ellie, so Sophia has to make the hard decision about if she still wants to play softball even if it’s for a different team. Sophia decides to keep working hard to get better and join another team.
I really liked how relatable this book was to me as a softball player and as a big sister. Ellie was a good role model for Sophia and helped her practice so that Sophia could get better. You can tell how much the sisters really loved each other by how they supported each other. It was a wonderful story not just about softball but about sisters.
