Overview

The Sweet Spot by Stacy Barnett Mozer

When thirteen-year-old Sam Barrette’s baseball coach tells her that her attitude's holding her back, she wants to hit him in the head with a line drive.

Why shouldn’t she have an attitude? As the only girl playing in the 13U league, she’s had to listen to boys and people in the stands screaming things like “Go play softball,” all season, just because she’s a girl. Her coach barely lets her play, even though she’s one of the best hitters on the team.

All stakes now rest on Sam’s performance at baseball training camp. But the moment she arrives, miscommunication sets the week up for potential disaster. Placed at the bottom with the weaker players, she will have to work her way up to A league, not just to show Coach that she can be the best team player possible, but to prove to herself that she can hold a bat with the All-Star boys.

This is an important book for girls and boys. In a world where two former female West Point graduates can kick butt in Ranger School, there is NO REASON why a girl who loves baseball and plays as well (or possibly better than the boys) shouldn't be allowed--EXPECTED-- to play. In Mozer's novel, the sweet spot is that place on the baseball bat that's just right--allowing the batter to hit it out of the park. But there's also a sweet spot in life and it's when EVERY PERSON is in the place where they get to be the best version of themselves. Mozer's book isn't an easy fix. It's hard to figure out who and what you're supposed to be with other people throwing aroung ignorant labels, sterotypes and abusive behavior. The Sweet Spot reminds us that even though it isn't easy, one of the best ways to attack adversity is with determination and a positive attitude. I'm so delighted to know there are authors like Mozer out there making sure that all kids are represented on the shelves. I can't wait to see what she writes next.
