Never Blame the Umpire

 It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books.  A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured.  The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between!  Enjoy your free peek into the book!

AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER: Just Press the Button:

 My Review: Wow, this is a good book but maybe a bit too much for a tween reader. I know my 11 year old daughter (same age as main character) would have a rough time with subject matter. I don't want to give a spoiler but I was way wrong in thinking the tragedy was divorce. If you have a mature tween or young teen, this would be a good book but be ready comfort them if they begin to worry.
