about

There's no playing it safe in love or baseball in this sparkling debut, perfect for fans of Morgan Matson and Kasie West. Marnie has never had a hard time fitting in with the guys. It would take a lot more than their goofy antics to keep her from joining them at the neighborhood sandlot to do what she loves best: play ball.An added perk of hanging out at the sandlot? Spending time with Cody Kinski, their high school's star pitcher and Marnie's best friend. Sure, he can be stubborn and annoying. He also knows how to make her laugh and respects her skills on the field. And when he gets nailed in the arm by a bone-fracturing pitch, Marnie becomes the team's best chance at making it to the playoffs. Except no one told the guys they're supposed to be on her side. With her own team against her, Marnie begins questioning her abilities. And when fate throws her a curveball, can she play without losing the game, Cody, and her belief in herself?

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun & Feminist I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I’m not typically one for sports novels, but I found it really interesting and fun. I loved seeing Marnie play, train, and learn. The fast pace and fun baseball scenes are a big part of what made this such a quick read. I couldn’t put it down, and I wanted to know what would happen next. To see a young woman being brave and fighting for what she wants is inspiring and lovely. She struggles at times, and that’s refreshingly realistic. She isn’t treated well by some of the guys, and there’s definitely a boys’ club vibe at times. However, the support she receives from those arround her is great. It gives us hope. The relationships in this book are great. We have regular family struggles, the growing pains friendships often face in your last years of high school, and romance. It’s at time dramatic and messy, but that’s real. One of Marnie’s guy friends was off-putting to me because he seemed more like a ‘frenemy’ than anything. And Cody makes mistakes too, that made me doubt the romance. However, I was happy with how things turned out. "Out of Left Field" hooked me from page one. I loved the female power, the relationships, and the romance despite its issues. It was a quick read, perfect for the summer and for people who love a good contemporary. #plumreview
