If life were a baseball game, all-star pitcher Gabby Garcia would be having her Best. Season. EVER! Until she's suddenly sent to another school and her winning streak is about to disappear — both on and off the field. But Gabby never gives up! She has a PLAN to keep her champion status intact, and every step of is written out — PLAY by PLAY. How could it not work?
This new series written by Iva-Marie Palmer is filled with funny illustrations, sports facts, and blooper-reel moments that will have readers laughing and rooting for more.
"From the opening pages of her story, baseball-obsessed seventh-grader Gabby Garcia makes it clear that her book is not a diary but a playbook, because 'playbooks are how you make things happen'.... Confident to the point of cocky, Gabby is sure that the [new] team will be begging for her services, but when she finally gets on the team, things don’t go as she had hoped ("even though I have what’s called a ‘big personality,’ I feel like it’s not working for me here”). Gabby’s satisfying journey toward gaining a more team-focused attitude is narrated in a wry and witty voice that ought to win over many readers, sports fans or not." — Publishers Weekly
