Booklist - 02/01/2018 Playing on a competitive 13-years-and-under baseball team, Trey relies on his lucky piece of sea glass to see him through. And it seems to work pretty well, until he loses it. He continues to observe baseball superstitions such as tapping corners of the plate with his bat, but still he’s definitely in a slump. To make up for his lost luck, Trey tries to ignore his superstitious impulses and work hard, taking extra batting and fielding practice to sharpen his skills. Soon playing better than ever, he reflects on where his luck really lies. A former kids’ baseball coach and the writer of a Washington Post sports column for young readers, Bowen adds an entertaining note on baseball superstitions. This short but satisfying chapter book portrays Trey’s life on the field, at school, and within his single-parent family. Featuring baseball equipment rather than people, the jacket photo doesn’t target or exclude any particular age group. The straightforward story will appeal to young players as well as older ones intimidated by longer novels. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
