"Girl germs," Billy Smythe sneered. It was a kindergarten taunt, just plain dumb, but his buddies snickered.
Can Fran pull her game together before it's too late?
Fran Cullers is having a horrible summer. She was a star player on the Little League team in her old town, so the Highwater Hardwares should be thrilled to have her-except that they hate girls. She can run rings around these guys, but they won't even give her a chance. So Fran sets out to destroy the Hardwares.
But vengeance is a dangerous thing, as she soon finds out. Fran, who has already faced some terrible losses, is about to lose the most important thing in her life-unless her family and friends come to her aid when she needs them most.
"Girl germs," Billy Smythe sneered. It was a kindergarten taunt, just plain dumb, but his buddies snickered as Billy pulled a bandana out of his back pocket and made a big show of wiping down the bat I had just dropped.
