Never Blame the Umpire

Wow! is all I can say about Never Blame the Umpire by Gene Fehler. Published by Zonderkidz for the "tween" market, this book will warm the hearts of adults as well. The story of Kate and her quest to understand God's actions -- and be comforted by His love -- when her world is turned upside down will bring both a tear and a smile. I can't recommend this highly enough!

This was a great read! I was completely wrapped up in the story and it didn't matter in the least that I am not a kid.
