While many girls would enjoy Screwball, girls interested in softball will especially love Keri Mikulski's Ashley Clarke novels. T-ball was my first organized sport and one that I followed (leading into regular little league and softball of course) all throughout my elementary years. Aside from one season of intramural softball in college, it has been many years since I have been involved in the sport, but I still enjoyed remembering back to my experiences while reading the book. Mikulski even creatively divided her chapters into innings that correlate to months in Ashley's freshman year.
Aside from the softball aspect, there are many themes common to teenage girls that would be easy for readers to relate to, such as balancing first romances with other aspects of their life and not giving up who they are just for their first boyfriend. Ashley also has to deal with plenty of girl drama.
Screwball was a fun read for the summer, and those who read it will be excited to see that the second book, Change Up will be released soon.
