Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Due to a fantastic beginning in this graphic novel (this is the second book in the series), the author is able to bring the reader up to date in just two pages. Both Kyle and Ryan were unhappy to see each other at the start of the new season, but when the coach told Kyle that he wanted him to work with Ryan, they got off to a very rocky start. Both were given ten laps to run. Even though they tried, both boys really had a problem with the other. During the first game, Ryan ignored Kyle when he told him what pitch to throw and they ultimately lost the game. Somehow the boys desire to play ball was greater than being angry with each other and they decide to practice together. The season continued and the team was climbing to the top, but Ryan eventually walked off the field when he pitched a home run to the other team. Kyle was instructed to try to get Ryan back for the next game. After getting advice from his Grandfather, Kyle goes to find Ryan. The reader will understand what happens then. This book is a grabber from the first to the last page. There is a good life lesson to be learned and anyone who has ever played in team sports will understand both boys' feelings. The author includes discussion questions, writing prompts, and a glossary for sport terms. Even though this is about a boy's baseball team, it is a perfect book for both boys and girls. This title is part of the "Sports Illustrated Kids Graphic Novels" series. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
