Six Innings: A Game in the Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two teams, six innings, one game.
 
A lively cast of characters—baseball-loving boys between the ages of eleven to thirteen—are playing the biggest game of their lives. With acrobatic catches, clutch hits, dramatic whiffs, and costly errors, this game is full of action. But as the book unfolds, pitch by pitch, a deeper story emerges, with far more at stake: Sam and Mike, best friends, are trying to come to terms with Sams newly diagnosed cancer. And this baseball diamond becomes the ultimate testing ground of Sam and Mikes remarkable friendship as they strive to find a way to both come out winners.

This is for the championship.

This is for life.

 
Six Innings is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

A game in the life of a Little League team playing in the championship—and two best friends whose bond is put to the test.

Synopsis:

If Judy Blume could write a book about Little League, about its players' deepest fears and secret dreams, it might come out something like this.--"Publishers Weekly," starred review.

Synopsis:

It’s the biggest game of the season, and twenty-three boys are ready to play. They’re checking each other out, plotting their strategies, and psyching themselves up. But one kid isn’t on the field. Sam Reiser, the announcer, is sitting it out this season. He can’t play, but he’s not about to miss a game. And watching over it all is exciting—the acrobatic catches, the incredible hits, the devastating errors—it’s just not the same. Sam’s friend Mike knows how he feels. Mike’s out in right field, wishing Sam could join him. Because this isn’t just a big game. It’s the championship—the biggest game of their lives.
