Be inspired to reach for your dreams!

In August 2014, Mo'ne Davis became the first female pitcher to win a game in the Little League World Series and the first Little Leaguer to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and a month later she earned a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. She was thirteen years old.

This inspiring memoir from a girl who learned to play baseball with the boys and rose to national stardom before beginning eighth grade will encourage young readers to reach for their dreams no matter the odds. Mo'ne's story is one of determination, hard work, and an incredible fastball. Mo'ne is a multisport athlete who also plays basketball and soccer and is an honor-roll student at her school in Philadelphia.

With an eight-page full-color photo insert and an exclusive keepsake poster, this memoir celebrates our fascination with baseball in a story of triumph to be shared with generations of young readers to come.

From the Back Cover:

An inspiring story of a courageous young girl who learned to play ball with the boys, only to outshine them on the national stage in the most watched Little League World Series of game of all time. Mo'ne Davis's story is one that will encourage readers to reach for their dreams no matter the odds, young girls to play ball with anyone, and add a new chapter to the rich history of women in baseball. At the age of 13, Mo'ne Davis became the first female pitcher to win a game in the Little League World Series. Her shut out performance thrust her into the national spotlight. Her memoir tells her story from the beginning. Growing up in Philadelphia where baseball teams were quickly losing players to soccer and lacrosse, Mo'ne's talent was first noticed when she was seven years old as she threw a football in perfect spirals to a group of boys. She learned to play basketball, soccer and baseball on teams where she was usually the only girl. With courage and determination, Mo'ne practiced and perfected her skills. She led her team, the Taney Dragons, to the Little League World Series in 2014. There she pitched a shutout in their opening game, beating Tennessee by 4 runs, and launching her into the media spotlight. She was the first female pitcher to win a game in the Little League World series. She became the first Little Leaguer to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in the magazine's 60-year history. And as she began eighth grade in the fall of 2014, Mo'ne earned a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame-her shutout jersey now hangs in the museum in Cooperstown, New York. This inspiring story will encourage young readers to reach for their dreams. Her ground-breaking achievements in the summer of 2014 have changed the game for women in athletics, putting a positive new spin on the phrase throw like a girl.
