PRAISE FOR TAGGED OUT!
4/4 **** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Well-written and full of relevant kid friendly information, Tagged Out, is an excellent read… Grant reflects the attitudes and behaviours of today’s young teens and made each of her characters real. Middle school kids will really enjoy reading this novel.
-Elaine Fuhr, CM (Canadian Review of Materials) journal. Whole review here.
With strong characters and lots of action, the deeper themes of Tagged Out ensure that even readers who aren’t familiar with baseball, or don’t consider themselves sports fans, will find many things to think about.
