Product Details

Praise

“A grand slam of an adventure.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Black girl magic hits a home run in Stone’s latest novel.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Books like “Fast Pitch” are welcome evidence that writers for young readers are continuing to move beyond narratives in which the primary problem is a character’s marginalization.” -The New York Times

“Tensions are high as the plot bounces between gameplay and sleuthing, ultimately reaching a satisfying conclusion…. Readers of all ages will cheer for Shenice.” —Booklist

“A sports mystery that will keep ­readers engaged from start to finish…Discussions about race and civil rights are seamlessly ­woven into the narrative through Shenice’s own ­experiences.” —School Library Journal

“This contemporary sports story goes beyond mere genre appeal; it is a novel of substance, carrying the weight of history.” –The Horn Book
