SOAR, by Joan Bauer


The story: Jeremiah has always loved baseball, but a heart transplant at age 10 is still keeping him on the sidelines. When he and his dad move to Hillcrest, Ohio, Jeremiah thinks he’s going to baseball heaven–but he lands in the middle of a scandal, and finds the team demoralized and fading. Who would ever have expected a nerdy 6th grader to pull them back together and help them claim the biggest win of all?


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Sports lovers and kids who like a feel-good ending will both like this story.
