Overview

Sammy Keyes and the Search for Snake Eyes by Wendelin Van Draanen

Sammy’s softball team is in contention for the Junior Slugger’s Cup, and all she wants to do is hunker down behind home plate and catch strikes. But Heather Acosta brings new meaning to the term “foul ball” as she schemes to get Sammy kicked off the team. And Sammy is thrown a wild pitch by a frantic girl in the mall. She begs Sammy to watch something for her and then dashes off before Sammy realizes that the bag she’s left holding contains a baby! Now there are some pitches that you shouldn’t even try to catch, but Sammy’s a take-it-in-the-chest-protector kind of player. So when the girl doesn’t return for her baby, Sammy decides to go find her. And her search leads her into situations that are just not covered in a softball playbook.

My son, who is 11, and I love this series of books. This one tackles some difficult social issues, teen pregnancy and gangs, all in the context of a mystery. The young heroine has some life challenges of her own which makes her pluckiness all the more admirable. She does take some risks you wouldn't want your own child taking, but I found it gave my son and I a chance to talk about the risky choices and alternate choices a real person could make to be safe and still do help a person in trouble like the heroine strives to do. We can't wait to read every book in the series. Sometimes after he's fallen asleep, I just have to read ahead!

I think sammy is actually a real hard core detective! In this mystery she gets herself into seriously dangerous situation like almost getting shot! The author did help us readers to understand how some peoples lives are in certain places though. I truely admire sammy because if l were in her place l wouldnt ever have half the courage and selflessness as sammy keyes always does. I wish her luck on her mysteries to come! (Even though l know she wont need it;)
