review 1: The title of this book is totally misleading. Unless you know baseball, you would think it's about the food. The title actually refers to a type of throw in baseball. A cream puff is basically when a pitcher throws a weak throw. As a pitcher, you don't want to throw cream puffs. That aside the book is about a girl who wants to play baseball in her town's boys little league. She's a fantastic pitcher and hitter. Some people see her as a role model and a trailblazer while others think she shouldn't play because baseball is a boy's sport. The book is a story of how she decides to play baseball and what happens because of it. I thought it was an enjoyable story. It was a quick easy read, that I didn't mean to pick up in the first place. Oops. I like it, but I didn't love it. U... morenless you like girls playing baseball in a boys league, I wouldn't go out of your way to find it. Not good enough to recommend.
review 2: I was hooked on this book from the very first page. The main character, Madison, is a few years younger than me, but the opening scene was something I experienced often at her age: she is standing in the bathroom at her middle school, watching the other girls put on lip gloss and being ostracized because she likes baseball, something not many girls that age are into. All in all, a very good read-- recommended for middle school girls, older girls, and anybody who loves baseball. less
