Distance to Home
This book is told in alternating chapters of the present summer and the previous summer. We find Quinnen who is a star baseball player until an accident claims the life of her sister. Unfortunately, before the accident things were strained between her and her sister and she feels partly responsible for what happened. Can Quinnen find her way back to the game she loves and a way to forgive and move on.
I enjoyed this book. It may fit a niche for a sporty book with a girl main character and while there are some typical middle grade themes it does rise above.
