My review of Soccer Tommies Baseball Mommies:
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.
