9781489574763: Fastpitch Fever (Softball Star)

Fastpitch Fever is part of the Softball Star series, inspiring sports books for preteens about girls who love playing softball and baseball.

Everyone thinks being a fourteen-year-old fastpitch softball player is nothing but fun and games. But ask Rachel Adams and you'll learn otherwise. There are millions of problems to deal with, including demanding dads, grumpy coaches, and umpires who make terrible calls. But Rachel really complicates things for herself when she sneaks out with her teammates, meets some boys, and drinks alcohol. Just two weeks prior to the state's championship tournament, she is grounded, suspended from school, nearly kicked off of her team, and injured. Will Rachel succumb to the pressures all around her, or will she rise to the challenge and lead her team to the championship game?

All of the books in the Softball Star series are standalone stories that may be read in any order, suitable for ages 12 and up.

From the Author:

The cover of Fastpitch Fever features Molly McCall, a sophomore at Henry M. Jackson High School in Mill Creek, Washington.  Molly is a middle infielder for the Northwest Lady Sharks, a 16u select team from Redmond, Washington.  Molly likes music, movies, and cars (and she'd like to get a VW Jetta for her sixteenth birthday).  Her cat's name is Cinnamon, but she's mad at him right now because he's developed an annoying habit of waking her at 4:30 every morning. Like many girls her age, Molly aspires to play fastpitch softball in college, and she can't wait until she graduates from high school in early summer 2012.

From the Back Cover:

Fastpitch Fever Excerpt:

   I head upstairs and plop down on my bed.  Normally, I take a shower as soon as I get home from a game, but right now I'm too tired.  My arms are worn out, my shoulders are tight, and my legs and butt are sore - no doubt the result of my lower body workouts.  I've never felt this exhausted before.  I don't know how I'm going to be ready for the state tournament in two weeks.  And then there's next year.  Next year I'm going to be in high school, and I'll be playing for the high school team in addition to playing for the Wildcats.  I can barely handle the rigors I'm facing right now, just being on one team.  What am I going to do when I'm on two?
   A thought occurs to me.  At first I dismiss it, but then I reconsider.
   I walk over to my desk.  I slide the drawer open, revealing a small, white, unmarked tube.  The one Darnell Williams gave me awhile back.  The one with the steroids.
   I can hardly believe it, but Darnell was right.  He said I would need them eventually.  And now I do. I need to get bigger and stronger, and I need to do it quickly, or I'll never be able to survive next year.  My dad has already started talking about high school, and he's hopeful I'll make the varsity team as a freshman even though he knows it's a long shot.  Like always, I don't want to let him down.
   I grab the tube and pop it open.
