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.

Review by KitKat24

So this is an AWESOME book. Like really. If you play any sport, have autism, or a lot of other things you would love this book. When I started reading this I was like omg this is literally me. I play soft ball and I get super scared. Thankfully I don't have to pich just yet and also it is a team with only GIRLS so its not so bad. Still, Vivy's almost exactly me. I really recommend this book. Its 326 pages and I read it in two days because it was SOOOOO good. Any way Its high on my list of favorite books so if you have not read it you have to read it. -Kat Ps: If you like this book then I would also recommend Wonder.

Review by GalitYaeli

I got the book and it was in pretty good condition. It looked good on the outside and inside. I so excited to read it and I hope you will get this book because it is AMAZING!!!!! By the way, what is your favorite sport. My favorite sport is dancing, but I play a lot of sports, especially soccer with my dad.
