The Girl Who Threw Butterflies By: Mick Cochrane
Molly misses her dad. He passed away six months ago. Her mother is now a different quiet person who barely talks. Molly misses playing catch in the backyard with her dad, and having pitching lessons with him. To feel a little closer to him, Molly decides to try out for the school baseball team. She is a great pitcher, but baseball is for boys.
This was a terrific read for upper elementary and up. What a wonderful story about loss and moving forward, and also about doing what you love even when you face trials. I loved the main character and was sad that she as a young person had to suffer the loss of her father. Wonderful!!
I borrowed this from the public library.
