Soar by Joan Bauer
I listened to the audio version of this Texas Bluebonnet Award winning book. It is a touching story and I think that kids will enjoy it. Eleven year old Jeremiah is a heart transplant recipient and while he is doing well, he is unable to play sports. An avid baseball fan, he has decided to be a coach and has the opportunity to coach a middle school baseball team in the new town that he and his adoptive father move to. Even though I am not a sports fan, I still enjoyed this book and it helped me to better appreciate the role of sports in the lives of the people who do enjoy them. The book is inspirational and a fun read. I will definitely recommend this book to others.
