Originally published in hardcover in 2016 by Viking. Newbery Honor winner Joan Bauer hits a home run with her newest protagonist, who always sees the positive side of any situation.

     Jeremiah is not one to let anything keep him down. Starting with his adoption by computer genius Walt, Jeremiah has looked on his life as a series of lucky breaks. When a weak heart keeps him from playing his beloved baseball, Jeremiah appoints himself the team coach. When Walt has to move for another new assignment, Jeremiah sees it as a great chance to explore a new town. But no sooner do they arrive than a doping scandel is revealed and the town feels betrayed and disgraced. Jeremiah takes it as his personal mission to restore the town's morale and help the teams bounce back and remember how to soar. Full of humor, heart, and baseball lore, Soar is Joan Bauer at her best.

Texas Bluebonnet Nomin...

Texas Bluebonnet Nominee. Jeremiah is unable to play baseball anymore because he has had a heart transplant, but he still loves the game. When he and his father move to a new town, he tries to organize and coach the middle school baseball team. A scandal involving the high school team has demoralized not only his team, but the entire town. Jeremiah is funny, philosophical, and focused. Recommend this to your sports-obsessed fans, and they'll come away with so much more than just a baseball story.

12 year old Jeremiah l...

12 year old Jeremiah loves baseball, but can't play due to heart issues. He was abandoned as a child, then adopted by the man that found him. His father works freelance, so,they frequently move. As they move to a new town, where baseball and the high school team are treated as royalty, Jeremiah feels he's found his place. When a high school ball player dies, and the high school coach is accused of giving the players steroids, baseball becomes taboo. That doesn't keep,Jeremiah from taking over the idle school team, and bringing home town pride back to the game.
