Review Detail4.7 3
This is just the beginning of Alex's woes. He and big athletic T.J. are enemies. T.J. challenges Alex to a pitching contest. (The only problem is, Alex canNOT pitch.) After that not-too-pretty scene, Alex's Little League team (which goes by the catchy name "Fran and Ethel's Cleaning Service") is up against T.J.'s. But, win or lose (and--let's face it--he mostly loses), Alex always carries the day with his wacky sense of humor.
The book has a surprise ending, which leads us irresistibly to the sequel, "Almost Starring Skinnybones." After devouring this funny, quick read, I can't wait to get to the next one!
