Being part of the Lady Tigers is about more than playing fastpitch softball. It’s about being part of a team.
Trish learns what that really means when she tries to pull a fast one to get what she wants without thinking through the consequences. Her decision could affect the game, but more importantly—her friends.
From Midwest Book Review
"Through the Lady Tigers' series, young readers will learn about softball, but also about friendship, consequences, disappointment, bullying, and other modern-day issues that are confronted during the tween and teen years. The first volume in what promises to be a truly outstanding 'Lady Tigers' series from the pen of Dawn Brotherton, "Trish's Team" is very highly recommended for both school and community library collections for young readers."
LitPick gives Trish’s Team a 5-star review!
Trish’s Team by Dawn Brotherton teaches many important lessons for kids, like the value of honesty, trust, and friendship. It also emphasizes how young athletes need to make good decisions to keep their lives balanced. Trish learns that her decisions affect not just herself, but also her entire team and her family.
Trish’s Team is a fast-paced book that will appeal to readers ages 7-11, especially girls who love sports. Readers who aren’t familiar with softball will still enjoy this book, because there is a helpful glossary of softball terminology in the back.
