Back Cover: Danny Walker is on eof the best players the team has; in fact, his adoptive parents and sister consider him a shoo-in for the shortstop position on the All-Star team. But that was before Tammy Aiken, the opposition’s new “Hot Dog” shortstop, showed up. Danny has a sinking feeling the newcomer is as good as he is – feeling her stats back up. And yet something besides her threatening to steal the All-Star spot from him is bothering him.. The more he watches her, the more he becomes convince that he’s seen her – or someone just like her – play before. Why does Tammy seem so familiar?

Mine: (I try to read some of the same books as my nephews. The older one loves Matt Christopher and I love baseball.) This is a great way great way to also discuss adoption, when do you tell someone that their were adopted.. Danny seems to have always known. Having a brother who was adopted as a baby, it’s nice to see how Danny belongs in the family.
