I found a nice review of Six Innings at the Books For Kids Blog. Thank you! The blogger, GTC, a retired librarian, did an exceptional job, a thoughtful review complete with quotes from the book. Of course I’m partial, but the quality of the writing in this review made it stand out for me. A cut above what you usually find on the web — or, I should add, backing away from a print-bias, anywhere else for that matter.
Preller takes full advantage of the dramatic tension of which baseball is capable without losing a step in character development. A story which even non-fan adults will love, Six Innings is a great junior novel which will leave readers understanding more about the game and more about the human heart.
This one’s out of the park.
