A good book!

Review by Edina

If you are in need of a good book, I totally recommend GET A GRIP VIVY COHEN. Vivy has autism and is an incredible knuckleball pitcher. With the help and advice of Vincent James Capello, a professional knuckleball pitcher, Vivy is able to play baseball on a real team, not just play catch with her brother. Do you think Vivy has what it takes to play baseball on a real team? Read GET A GRIP VIVY COHEN to find out.

I would give this SEVEN stars if I could! I have a brain disorder too, but look at me, I take gymnastics! I hope you all like this book.

Review by Leeshabrown

I read this book of my own accord, it was very good. Not five stars because I feel it could’ve been a little longer and the switching off between letters and normal dialogue threw me off

Okay, so I have to chose my new PJ Our Way book, and I go through the choices. When I found this book and started the sample I kept reading it until the sample was over. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!
