" i loved this book i love all derek jeter books i like the stories he has " said.

"My favorite book I read in 2017, was the book Fair Ball by Derek Jeter . The book takes place in Derek Jeter's hometown and takes you through some of the experiences he had before his Major League career. Derek is trying to focus on the end of the year test, as school is out in a few days. His friends Gary is ignoring Derek and derek doesn't know why he is ignored him like that. Derek is going away to New Jersey for the summer and is allowed to bring a friend. He wants to bring Gary, but he hasn't had the time to ask him too. He really wants to save his team as the championship game is near. Can he do it all. " said.

" This is a continuation of grade four, ending the school year, and baseball season. This is my second favorite, next to The Contract, because it deals with diversity in simple terms.You also often read “It’s not fair.” And life as we know it, is not fair, how are we going to react to that perceived unfairness?I look forward to book #5. " said.

"E ARC from Edelweiss Above the Treeline

The Indians are in the final four of the Kalamazoo baseball championship, and Derek hopes that his team can work together to win. He's also hoping that for his birthday he can invite his friend Dave for a week at his grandparents' house. He and Dave are also supposed to have a sleepover, but Dave keeps backing out and doesn't want to talk about it. Sharlee is taking a karate class, and one of Derek's teammates, Gary, is taking it as well but doing very poorly. Vijay is a little irritated with Derek's insistence on being friends with Dave when he seems to want to avoid Derek. All of this puts stress on the team, and even brings down Derek's grades a bit. Eventually, Dave's parents' problems with Derek's family are worked out, and the team is able to come together. Will they win the championship?
Strengths: This is a good length for a middle grade sports book, had a lot of baseball, and incorporated important life lessons. The best part is always Derek's supportive family.
Weaknesses: I wish that Derek were a little older, and the big discussion of diversity in the middle of the book really slowed things down and seemed overly preachy.
What I really think: Baseball books aren't as popular as other sports books in my library, but these are a solid circulator and I will no doubt buy the entire nine book series.
