Kurzbeschreibung

Sometimes life’s greatest accomplishments take place off the field.

There’s nothing All Star pitcher Peter Friedman loves more than baseball. He breathes it, dreams it, and works his tail off to be great. Most kids are nervous about starting high school, but when you’re the star athlete, girls, popularity, and all-around stud status are sure to follow.

Then a pitching accident over the summer ruins Pete’s arm. If he can’t play baseball in high school, what is he supposed to do? If he isn’t the star pitcher, then who is he? To make matters more complicated, there’s something going on with Pete’s grampa -- he’s acting weird and keeps forgetting important things.

The only person Pete can confide in is Angelika, the amazingly cute girl in his photography class who might like Pete as much as he likes her . . . Only, Angie doesn’t know if she can date someone who can’t be honest with himself, or with the people he’s closest to.

HASH(0x8cac99d8) von 5 Sternen Another winner by Sonnenblick 27. März 2012
Von Heidi G - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Peter is a star pitcher hoping to make the JV team as a freshman, but all those games that he played through the pain have left his elbow in a bad state. He doesn't know what to do with his time after the career-ending surgery other than feel sorry for himself and think about his best friend AJ making the team. When he meets Angelika in his photography class, things start looking up. Peter is familiar with cameras and photography due to watching and assisting his grandfather, a very well-known wedding photographer. Grandpa has recently started forgetting things and Angelika suggests that he may have Alzheimer's, a disease which her grandmother had. There is no offensive language or sexual content but Peter does drink alcoholic fruit punch at a party, gets sick, and has a hangover the next day. This story has many elements which teens will relate to--sweet romance, having their dreams crushed, sadness at seeing the physical decline of a family member.

HASH(0x8cac333c) von 5 Sternen 7th grader loved it! 6. Januar 2016
Von Rebecca Coleman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Bought this for my 13-year-old son based on good reviews here and on Pinterest. He is not an especially avid reader, but he finished the book in two days and couldn't stop talking about how great it was. And this was after initially reading the back-cover description and thinking it was going to be predictable and "like every sports story I've ever read"-- but it didn't turn out that way at all. Now he wants to read the author's other works. I'm very impressed!

HASH(0x8ca0b4ec) von 5 Sternen Laid back, realistic writing style makes for good reading 21. Juni 2012
Von Maggie Knapp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Peter Friedman can feel every gristly painful moment when his elbow goes out in a baseball game at the end of 8th grade. Pitching and photography are his life....and now one of them seems to be over. Peter can't quite come to terms that his baseball career has been cut short, but in the meantime, he throws himself into photography, a skill he learned at his grandfather's knee, and something he has a real talent for. Through his camera, he meets Angelika, another talented photographer and together they face the school year, with all the changes it brings. The story has humor without being non-stop comedy, and serious points without being gloomy. Generous white space and the punchy, readable writing style make this something I'd recommend for 6-8th grade readers.

HASH(0x8cc59cc0) von 5 Sternen Excellent Coming of Age Story 15. September 2013
Von PDXbibliophile - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Curveball is another great read from Jordan Sonnenblick one of the very best YA authors. His understanding of adolescence is apparent in the authentic characters, realistic events and witty teenage sarcasm. Cruveball is the story of Pete, a typical shy, quiet suburban teen who leaves 8th grade as one of the best baseball players in the state and a better than decent basketball player. He is also best friends with AJ, the super athlete, super popular, super good-looking, center of attention wherever he goes, class leader. Pete is confident his athletic talents and friendship with AJ will help him make a smooth transition into the frightening world of high school - until Pete is told by his doctors he will never play ball again and he and AJ end up with no classes together. Luckily, Pete is also best friends with his grandfather, a famous photographer who taught Pete everything he knows about photography. When school starts, instead of following in AJ's shadow, Pete ends one of two freshman in advanced photography. The other freshman is the beautiful, funny, wise Angelika and much to Pete's dismay, she finds Pete's awkwardness adorable. In addition to trying figure out who he is if he can't be an athlete, Pete is trying to figure out how to deal with the dementia he sees destroying his grandfather. The dementia his mother and father deny is happening. Angelika and AJ help Pete through this befuddling year and help him discover the real Pete. Curveball will appeal to all readers including reluctant readers. I love Jordan Sonnenblick's strong themes of family and friendship. His characters are not one dimensional or stereotypical and the adults, while not perfect, are loving and supportive. YA readers will love that Pete, AJ and Angelika could be the students sitting next to them.
HASH(0x8cadda14) von 5 Sternen The Year I Lost My Grip” by Jordan Sonnenblick is a great book with many different twists and turns 2. Mai 2016
Von Sureshbabu Shanmugam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
“Curveball, The Year I Lost My Grip” by Jordan Sonnenblick is a great book with many different twists and turns. It is about a boy named Peter who has a fatal injury that affects his pitching “career”. Peter is broken by this and doesn’t know what he is going to do with his life. That’s when his life takes a turn for the better. He meets and incredibly cute girl in his photography class who likes him just as much as he likes her. Her name is Angelika. But Angelika doesn’t know if she can date someone who keeps secrets and isn’t honest with themselves… and their friends and family.
Jordan Sonnenblick uses a LOT of descriptive diction and similes. One example of a simile is when he compared the noise Peter’s elbow was making to “2 pennies clicking together”. I could easily see in my mind how his elbow was damaged and how much pain Peter was in. The author also described everything in extremely precise detail.
The part that I didn’t see coming was when Peter and AJ(Peter’s best friend) got drunk. They were at Linnee Vaughn, the most popular girl in the school’s party. They drank punch that had alcohol in it and Peter passed out. Angelika slept in AJ’s bed while I slept with peter in the living room. AJ’s mom was furious with Peter and AJ. I didn’t think that AJ’s mom would actually push him and shake him. AJ’s mom was a very laid back type of mom and I honestly did not expect her to HIT Peter(though it wasn’t very hard).
The two biggest problems in the book are that Peter can’t bring himself to tell AJ that he can never pitch again and Peter’s grandpa has Alzheimer's​. It was a very suspenseful and fast paced book. I wanted to read page after page. In the end, Peter tells AJ that he can’t pitch and Peter’s grandpa goes to a senior center.
Overall, this was a great book. The author, Jordan Sonnenblick prints the images into our minds with his use of words. He is an amazing author and would definitely read more of his books. This book had many different plot twists and kept me wanting to read more. This was definitely an amazing book.
