Higuera has knocked it out of the park.--Erin Entrada Kelly, New York Times Book Review

 

Heartfelt, funny and smeared with just the right touch of middle-school snottiness, this novel is a delight!--Ron Charles, The Washington Post

 

★ A home run. --Publishers Weekly, starred review

 

★ A laugh-out-loud story about family, friendship, and the beauty in being true to yourself.--Booklist, starred review

 

Lupe Wong is going to be the first female pitcher in the Major Leagues.

 

She's also championed causes her whole young life. Some worthy.like expanding the options for race on school tests beyond just a few bubbles. And some not so much.like complaining to the BBC about the length between Doctor Who seasons.

 

Lupe needs an A in all her classes in order to meet her favorite pitcher, Fu Li Hernandez, who's Chinacan/Mexinese just like her. So when the horror that is square dancing rears its head in gym? Obviously she's not gonna let that slide.

 

Not since Millicent Min, Girl Genius has a debut novel introduced a character so memorably, with such humor and emotional insight. Even square-dancing fans will agree.
