My kid says he likes to read, but this book was the only one he read in one sitting. The characters are quite relatable and the dialogue has the pacing of witty kid banter. I appreciate books with a sportsmanship theme. In the story, Connor puts tremendous internal pressure on himself to be perfect at the sport. His trials, particularly his internal dialogue, were great for discussing with my own hothead. It is clear that this book is written from a place of love and wisdom for the game of baseball and the kids who relish playing it.
this book was really funny and good. cal ripken jr did amazing on the book. I strongly reccomend to anyone who likes baseball and humor. He blew the book out of the park (baseball pun). The worst part of the whole book was when you finish hothead.
