Publisher's Summary

Newbery Honor winner Joan Bauer's newest protagonist always sees the positive side of any situation - and listeners will cheer him on!

Jeremiah is the world's biggest baseball fan. He really loves baseball, and he knows just about everything there is to know about his favorite sport. So when he's told he can't play baseball following an operation on his heart, Jeremiah decides he'll do the next best thing and become a coach.

Hillcrest, where Jeremiah and his father, Walt, have just moved, is a town known for its championship baseball team. But Jeremiah finds the town caught up in a scandal and about ready to give up on baseball. It's up to Jeremiah and his can-do spirit to get the town - and the team - back in the game.

Full of humor, heart, and baseball lore, Soar is Joan Bauer at her best.

Wonderful book

This is the most moving audiobook I have ever listened to. It's a great story about baseball and courage and love. A satisfying plot and cast, especially Jeremiah, a character you'll never want to forget. AND a superb, pitch-perfect performance by Michael Crouch, which just makes it almost too much. A perfect book for the kid you love, and perhaps a perfect book for us adults who need to remember the nobility of team sport at its best. Highest possible recommendation.

Heart with wings!

If you love baseball and people with courage and heart, you will love this book. Michael Crouch draws you into the story with his voice. His Jeremiah makes you laugh and cry. He expertly introduces you to the other cast members who are sometimes quirky, endearing and frustrating. You will fall in love and will stand up cheering!!
