This book was not only fun but funny. This should become a classic middle grade read, with Lupe and her troubles with square dancing. It's refreshing to read about a girl who unabashedly loves baseball and has a goal of pitching for the majors. What's also really great is Lupe also has diverse friends who are fleshed out instead of just side characters. This book also deals with what many kids that age go through, grief, friend navigation, exclusion, embarrassment and fighting for what you believe in. I particularly loved the "Would you Rather" game as well as one hilarious thing that one sibling tricked another with (I'm going to use this on the next bratty kid I meet).

My gym shorts burrow into my butt crack like a frightened groundhog.Don't you want to read a book that starts like that Lupe Wong is going to be the first female pitcher in the Major Leagues.She's also championed causes her whole young life. Some worthy...like expanding the options for race on school tests beyond just a few bubbles. And some not so much...like complaining to the BBC about the length between Doctor Who seasons.Lupe needs an A in all her classes in order to meet her favorite pitcher, Fu Li Hernandez, who's Chinacan/Mexinese just like her. So when the horror that is square dancing rears its head in gym? Obviously she's not gonna let that slide.Not since Millicent Min, Girl Genius has a debut novel introduced a character so memorably, with such humor and emotional insight. Even square dancing fans will agree...
