Emotions are at a high point after ‘Old Luke’ hits the town of Belleville. Building’s and lives are destroyed and the Fabiano twins, Teddy and Terri, find themselves in a fight to the finish to see who’s team will win the right to the only ball field left within a hundred miles.

What the kids and everyone around them learns is that the ‘home field advantage’ is not something you win. It’s more about working together and becoming a real team. Soccer Tommies, Baseball Mommies is a clever little book about kids and the true meaning of winning.

My review of Soccer Tommies Baseball Mommies:

5 *****

Tornadoes, girls playing soccer…boys with baseball bats… G. Mitchell Baker has a talent of creating this easy-going atmosphere and bringing the reader in the eye of the story. Or in this case, should I say in the eye of a storm…

This story could tell about me or you or someone we know, as it is quite realistic and message in it ageless. In this story G. Mitchell Baker skillfully reminds the reader about the power of community and how things will work out if people just work together.

The town of Belleville has been hammered pretty badly by the tornado called Old Luke. Soccer players will have to share a practice field with the baseball people. Easy, you may think…well, think again. Things can get pretty bloody where there are baseball mommies around. But where there is will there is a victory.

I don’t know a squat about soccer or baseball or at least I didn’t before I had read this book. And yet this story is so much more than just about soccer or baseball. There is hidden wisdom along the way, life lessons that you don’t want to miss. Sure, this is a book for teen/YA readers, but I don’t see a reason why adults couldn’t enjoy the story as well. I did.

This was a refreshing change and quite different from the YA books I normally read, and yeah also, because I absolutely love G. Mitchell Baker’s writing style. That said, if you have or happen to know a teenager who likes sport books with a couple of interesting twists, this book might be a perfect gift for them.


About jenniferloiske

Jennifer Loiske lives in Finland in Naantali, which is a small sunny town on the southwest coast. She is a pre-school teacher by profession but she stayed at home when her youngest daughter suffered brain fever, which developed severe epilepsy in 2004. She is a workaholic Teen/Young Adult author, who loves dark fantasy, teen movies, chips and candies and warm sunny days. She’s also very keen on charity work and a big part of her royalties goes to the charity; mainly to help families with epileptic children but also to the epilepsy units in the hospitals. As a huge fan of dark novels Jennifer's bookshelf is full of books from L.J. Smith, Alyson Noel, Stephanie Meyer, Chloe Neill, Michelle Rowen, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Amanda Hocking and Lauren Kate. She’s also a huge fan of music from Evanescence, Linkin Park, Within Temptation, OneRepublic and Disturbed. But her hunger for music is endless and depend on what mood she’s in or what kind of book she’s working on. She can be pretty much an omnivore when it comes to music.
