This is a fictitious account of Alta Weiss. It has a Casey at the Bat feel to it with its prose poetry. Formatted in "innings" (chapters) this is great for baseball fans and for women's history month. And while it is slightly on the longer side, picture book readers will love it, too. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
