"10 year old daughter's review:

It is a good book, it only took me about an hour to read it and the story is really good. It has a lot of features that is probably meant more for girls because of the direction it goes. It could also become a series if they want to make more books.

My review:

I am pleasantly surprised in this story. Not only was I in a position like that when I was younger, but I know how that works with my own daughter. She is in a boy-dominated sport and so for her it is a daily trial to not only do the best she can, but to make sure that she is also not actively made fun of on a daily basis.

I received this book free through the Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a review.

" Smarty Marty Steps Up Her Game by Amy Gutierrez is the sequel to Smarty Marty's Got Game (2013). Smarty Marty loves baseball and loves to watch her brother play. She knows the game well enough that when the regular announcer can't call the day's little league game, she's invited to fill in. http://pussreboots.com/blog/2017/comm... " said.

" Amy G knows her stuff. This is a fun read for all baseball fans, and a great lesson in how to handle bullies. " said.

" Deals with bullies and listening to your parents as well as baseball! " said.

" For baseball lovers and for kids who find themselves competitive situation that they don't want to be in, nor understand. I like how Marty does what she loves and her whole family supports her - even though it is hard " said.

" Marty not only keeps score for her little brother's Little League team, but now she's the announcer. This turn of events angers some of the boys playing and they try to bully Marty into quitting by bullying her little brother.Quick read, good story for those younger readers, but my favorite thing about it was the fact the author is a sports reporter herself. " said.

"This was a positive, well written young middle grade chapter book. I wish that in 2017, girls were still not given a hard time about things like participating in sports, but clearly, there is still some work to do. I liked that Marty was not going to put up with any guff and stood up for herself nicely. The formatting of this was excellent-- lots of white space, a few illustrations, larger text. I wish I had read the first book in the series, which came out in 2013.

This would be great for an elementary library.
