~Mini Review~ Game Changer

Game ChangerBook description:Athletics are everything for eighth-grader KT Sutton. She’s a softball star, and she’s on track to get a college scholarship and achieve international fame. Then one day during a championship game—in the middle of an important play—she suddenly blacks out.

When she wakes up, she’s in a different world. One where school is class after class of athletic drills, and after-school sports are replaced by popular academic competitions. One where KT is despised for her talent, and where her parents are fixated on her brother’s future mathletics career rather than KT’s softball hopes.

KT is desperate to get back to reality as she knew it, but bits and pieces of disturbing memories and dreams make her wonder if something truly awful happened there. What if she’s lost something a lot more important than a softball game? (taken from Goodreads)

My thoughts:Through the first third of the book or so I didn't like it as much. It felt  a bit depressing. By the middle though I was really enjoying this book. It has a wonderful message of being kind to those who might be different from you, for sticking up for your real friends and how important all that is especially, in middle school. I really loved the ending because it was so perfect. This book has a bit less of some of the author's excitement as in other books, but it was still a book that I really liked. Margaret Peterson Haddix is a wonderful writer! I love all of her books :) And this one was no different! I would recommend to tween girls. It will definitely be a great book for any tween girls to read because of the message the author brings up, which is one that needs to be heard. That no matter who you are you have feelings and that no matter how different from you a person is they could still be their friend.
Cover thoughts:I like the fonts for the title, but the rest is a bit generic
Love, Sierra
