Newbery Honor–winner Joan Bauer’s newest protagonist always sees the positive side of any situation—and readers will cheer him on!

Jeremiah is the world’s biggest baseball fan. He really loves baseball and he knows just about everything there is to know about his favorite sport. So when he’s told he can’t play baseball following an operation on his heart, Jeremiah decides he’ll do the next best thing and become a coach.

Hillcrest, where Jeremiah and his father Walt have just moved, is a town known for its championship baseball team. But Jeremiah finds the town caught up in a scandal and about ready to give up on baseball. It’s up to Jeremiah and his can-do spirit to get the town—and the team—back in the game.

Full of humor, heart, and baseball lore, Soar is Joan Bauer at her best.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bauer’s latest feel-good novel is distinguished by a largehearted warmth, its able characterizations, a page-turning plot, and winning humor.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Jeremiah’s voice is perfect: plucky, vulnerable, pragmatic, smart, and immensely endearing. Bauer masterfully manages the various plotlines… An outstanding, tender exploration of courage and the true nature of heroism and, for good measure, a fine homage to America’s game, as well.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Jeremiah’s enthusiasm for baseball is infectious, and he plays a major role in rebuilding and coaching a team at the middle school while lifting the sagging spirits of community members…Readers will feel that Jeremiah’s victories are well earned and deserved.”
