No one asks Ella how she feels about moving halfway across the country in the middle of her sophomore year. But she ends up in Texas anyway, without plans for the weekend or friends to guide her through the alien campus of her new private school. So she decides to try out for the softball team -- and she makes it. Now if only she knew how to throw, hit, and field the ball. This is the part you can't read in a book. You just have to do it. Ella has a lot to learn -- on and off the field. Softball changes Ella's life, for better and for worse. She discovers a confidence she never knew she had and makes new friends -- and enemies. When Ella falls for her snotty teammate's gorgeous brother, suddenly she isn't just fielding balls, she's also dodging evil glares from girls in class and on the team.
