Summary "Moving from a big city to a small town is hard for KaLeah. But at least she still has baseball, right? Wrong. The cliquey Valley Girls exclude and bully Kal because she is black and a better softball player than popular girl Nikki. Kal wants to reclaim her passion and decides to play on the best baseball team for her age group. Except the Trail Boys are, well, all boys and most aren't happy to let a girl on the team-- even if she is a natural. Can Kal prove to the Valley Girls, the Trail Boys and the whole sports-crazy town that she has what it takes?"--Page 4 of cover.
