Vivy dreams of being a knuckleball pitcher, but her overprotective mom is hesitant to let her play a sport with boys, because of her "challenges" (Vivy is autistic) and because she's a girl. Vivy fights this overprotectiveness in a number of ways - eventually enlisting her coach, writing her mom a letter, and asking her dad (who may also be on the spectrum) to stand up for her. Meanwhile, she worries that her older brother Nate doesn't have time for her anymore, but it turns out Nate has stuff going on in his own life, and eventually he confides in Vivy. The story is told through letters and e-mails between Vivy and major league knuckleball pitched VJ Capello.

Quotes

Constantly feeling the need to prove yourself can be quite a burden. (VJ to Vivy, 63)

I do know I have challenges, but sometimes I feel like Mom doesn't see all the things I CAN do. (91)

Expectations are hard. It's almost easier when everyone expects nothing much from me. (105)

People like Kyle have always told me that I'm stupid, that I talk wrong, walk wrong, am wrong. When that happens you don't exactly WANT to talk very much....
"Just because I don't talk much doesn't mean I don't have things I want to say." (Vivy to Alex, 142)

It's funny how everything in baseball is so dependent on other people. You can pitch great and lose some days, and then sometimes you're lousy and win anyway because the rest of the team picks you up. (152)

Sometimes things just happen and you can't control it. (174) ( )

This novel shares the story of Vivy Cohen, who is an autistic girl who is determined to defy norms. Although her mom is worried, Vivy decides to join an all-boys baseball team and follow her dreams. This would be a great read for those who may have autism. It would also be a great book to empower girls to defy norms and chase after their dreams. This book would be fitting for those in upper elementary or early middle school. ( )

Major-league pitcher VJ Capello has been Vivy Cohen’s hero ever since he showed her his grip for the knuckleball at a social event for people on the autism spectrum and their families. Vivy writes a letter to VJ to satisfy the requirements of her social-skills class and, after Vivy sends him several letters, VJ actually writes back! The author, Sarah Kapit brings her lived experience as an autistic individual to craft Vivy as a believable character. Watch my video review at https://youtu.be/x-UrxoflBPc

Vivy writes to a pro baseball player that she met once and he responds eventually. That is how the author decided to tell this entire story--in letter form only. I’m not sure why the author decided to tell this story in letters only. I feel it would have been better with the letter writing as part of the story. The letters sound too much like storytelling instead of letter writing. Vivy has autism but the letter writing doesn’t sound like an autistic child wrote it. Also, she wasn’t honest about what upset her and she didn’t have true autistic tendencies. Adult advice wasn’t always what it should be. The story needed more research. ( )

I've read through a pretty early version and later excerpts and it was delightfully written. I'm thrilled to have a well-written autistic protagonist hit the shelves, too! I especially enjoyed the strong voice of the character Vivy, and the struggle to prove oneself as disabled person is all too real. ( )
