Jackson's mom is dating. Gig's dad is going to serve in the Middle East. Isaac might be going to a new school. Diego spends his spare time working. These four friends lead different lives, but on the baseball field, they're a strong team―the top of the order. As their last year of elementary school ends, the boys want to have their best baseball season ever. But this year, they might not even have enough players to stay in the league. Then a great player volunteers to join the team. But it's a girl! And she plays with a pink glove! Now the team is coming apart at the seams. Will this end up being the worst season ever?

Here is a story about how life, like sports, can be unpredictable, frustrating, and exhilarating. Top of the Order by John Coy is part of the 4 for 4 series, an action-packed middle grade series for young readers about four boys from diverse backgrounds who deal with family, friendship, and school situations.


“Appealing characters and plenty of baseball action will make this a hit with young sports fans.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Coy effortlessly captures the voices of boys on the verge of adolescence. Jackson and his friends are fully developed.” ―School Library Journal

John Coy has written several books for children and spends much of his time as a writer-in-residence at elementary schools. He lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

   “Run out to the position you want to play,” Coach claps.
     I run to short, the best position on the field. Gig races to the mound. Diego takes first and Tony Cerrato’s at third. In the outfield, Isaac’s in center, Steve Stein’s in left, and Cole Gunderson’s in right. Behind the plate, Noah Hauser is catching. But nobody is at second.
     As I blow a bubble, I turn to see a clatter on the hill behind first base. A boy on a bike is racing toward us. He pulls up to the fence and leans the bike down.
     Then I realize it’s not a boy. It’s Gig’s sister, Sydney. What happened? Why is she here?
     She pulls a black glove out of her backpack. “I want to play.”
     I look at Gig on the mound. His mouth is open and his eyes are bugging out. Everyone else, including Coach, is staring at Sydney as she walks onto the field.
     Who does she think she is?
