This book is about a boy named Billy who is about 13 years old and lives on a farm in Flint, Minnesota. Billy lost his only brother Robert in a farming accident when Billy was eight. Billy really loves to play baseball and wants to join the team but his father Abner Baggs needs his help on the farm. Abner lets Billy go to a couple of practices when there is not much to do on the farm. Will Abner let Billy play the only game left in the season? This book isn¿t confusing at all because the narrators don¿t change very much and the book is easy to follow along with. I could really relate to this book, because Billy is a farm boy who loves baseball and I used to farm all the time and I still love baseball. The book really started off with a bang and then slowed down a little bit but then picked back up after a while. This book is the first book of a three book series. This book doesn¿t really remind me of any movies or T.V. shows. I think that if you are a boy around 13 to 14 and you like baseball, you will like this book. Also, if you liked reading books by Dan Gutman when you were younger, you will enjoy this book called Striking Out by Will Weaver. This is a very enjoyable book and I hope you like it too if you decide to read it.

Rather exhilerating! This bookwas excellent, especially when Billy's father let him be on the team. In the last game when Billy became the star of the team and hit a homer was amazing. They even put him into pitch and he threw a shut out. I never thought that some one who has never played can become an all-star. this book proved me wrong.

Will Weaver combines sports and realistic fiction in a novel that exceded all of my high expectations by over 100%. When I told my mom what it was about she said, 'This is a true story, yes?' Which is proof as to how good this book is and how magnificent an author Will Weaver is. I play softball so naturally I liked this story. When I read that Mr.Weaver is from Bemidji, Minnesota, my respect for him flew up several notches. My mother's family is Minnesotan. My grandmother acctually grew up in Bemidji. Due to the good nature of this book, I award it the appropriate 5 stars.

This is a have to read series!! I read the first book of the series which is striking out and i had to read the others!! This is a great series and it gets better book by book!! I love this series and I ABSOLUTELY hate reading. But i could read this over and over and over. It is easy to understand also. I recommend it to anybody who wants an action packed book!!
