Jeremiah's favorite thing in the world is baseball; however, after a heart operation leaves him unable to play, he does the next best thing and organizes a team and becomes its coach in a town where a scandal has crippled the image of baseball. It is up to him to help everyone remember why the game is really played and what is really important.
Not just for boys or baseball fans, this book has a great voice with an uplifting message for everyone. Told with humor and heart, Soar is another home run for author Joan Bauer.
