    " So many children have different hardships that create unique family structures. Molly (the best name to give a character even spelled incorrectly) followed her heart and became comfortable with who she is. No wonder all these novels were nominated for the Rebecca Caudill award. I am enjoying each one. "

    " This is a good book for sports lovers. Molly has perfected a killer knuckleball, something her father worked with her on before he died. Now she is trying out for the schools baseball team, while grieving for her father. Nice comparisons of baseball to life. This is a great coming-of-age story. "

    " The fall of her eighth grade year, Molly's father dies in a car accident. Molly was always a daddy's girl, and now that it's just her and her mom, things are difficult. One of the loves that Molly and her dad shared was baseball. So kind of in his honor, and also because she just isn't a fan of softball, Molly decides to go out for the boy's baseball team that spring. Her dad taught her how to throw a knuckleball when she was little, and that becomes her secret weapon. Some of the boys aren't so thrilled to have a girl on the team - especially a girl who can hold her own - but Molly is determined to stick it out. A good sports story. "

    " While it might be easy to dismiss this as a Dairy Queen, baseball version, this is a very heartfelt book. Many times it struck me as more of a high school mentality, but the main characters are in eighth grade. The heroine, Moll, is deeply grieved over the recent death of her father and her mother's sometimes very withdrawn demeanor. There are several baseball scenes with just the right amount of detail, and the ending was not as cliched as I anticipated. "
