Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip

I am really excited about this one! I wrote it for my teenage son, and it is based on an incident that happened a couple of years ago to a player on his travel baseball team. It’s also about first love, photography, dangerous secrets, and Alzheimer’s disease.

You can read the first 21 pages online at Scholastic’s website here.

The book is a Junior Library Guild selection and a Kids’ Next List pick for the Independent Booksellers’ Association for spring 2012, and has earned starred reviews in Booklist and Publishers Weekly.  Here is a lovely review from BookPage.  I am also really happy that the book is getting lots of love from the book-blogging community.
