|Summary, etc.:||From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nic Stone comes a challenging and heartwarming coming-of-age story about a softball player looking to prove herself on and off the field . Shenice Lockwood, captain of the Fulton Firebirds, is hyper-focused when she steps up to the plate. Nothing can stop her from leading her team to the U12 fast-pitch softball regional championship. But life has thrown some curveballs her way. &nbsp; Strike one: As the sole team of all-brown faces, Shenice and the Firebirds have to work twice as hard to prove that Black girls belong at bat. &nbsp; Strike two: Shenice&rsquo;s focus gets shaken when her great-uncle Jack reveals that a career-ending&mdash;and family-name-ruining&mdash;crime may have been a setup. &nbsp; Strike three: Broken focus means mistakes on the field. And Shenice&rsquo;s teammates are beginning to wonder if she&rsquo;s captain-qualified. &nbsp; It's up to Shenice to discover the truth about her family&rsquo;s past&mdash;and fast&mdash;before secrets take the Firebirds out of the game forever.|
