This week I am waiting on
Out of Left Field by Kris Hui Lee
Publication Date: May 1st, 2018
There’s no playing it safe in love or baseball in this sparkling debut, perfect for fans of Morgan Matson and Kasie West.
Marnie has never had a hard time fitting in with the guys. It would take a lot more than their goofy antics to keep her from joining them at the neighborhood sandlot to do what she loves best: play ball.
An added perk of hanging out at the sandlot? Spending time with Cody Kinski, their high school’s star pitcher and Marnie’s best friend. Sure, he can be stubborn and annoying. He also knows how to make her laugh and respects her skills on the mound. And when he gets nailed in the arm by a bone-fracturing pitch, Marnie becomes the team’s best chance at making it to the playoffs. Except no one told the guys they’re supposed to be on her side.
With her own team against her, Marnie begins questioning her abilities. And when fate throws her a curveball, can she play without losing the game, Cody, and her belief in herself?
You all know how much I love sports contemporary novels. So, it was only natural for me to feature this book. I think it’s even more interesting and exciting to read about a young girl that has to defy the odds and prove herself to those that look down on her because of her gender. Even more so, the promise of a possible best friend to lovers between Marnie and Cody has me so excited to get my hands on the book.
What’s your most anticipated book?
