The team's star player works with Dakota on his baseball skills, and also leads him into trouble . . . with the law.

Review quote

"Readers feel Dakota's confusion and pain as he meets his dad's new girlfriend. In the following weeks, Dakota no longer see his dad as the hero he once was, and instead looks to his Heavenly Father for approval. A lesson in divine forgiveness prevails as Dakota mends relationships with his mother and big sister. Girls would relate to the book as much as boys, as it deals with the all-too-common feelings children experience during family strife."--Michael Anderson"CBA Marketplace" (10/01/2004)show more

Back cover copy

The next pitch whipped toward me so fast, I could barely see it. I swung blindly, feeling the contact clear down to my feet. Vaguely aware of wild cheering in the background, my body blasted into automatic. Two steps from first, I saw it . . . I had whacked the ball over that fence--an automatic home run! It might take him all season, but Dakota is determined to become the best player on the team. Then, maybe his dad will be proud of him . . . and maybe he will come home. "In Out at Home I really learned a lot about forgiveness, especially during difficult situations. This is a good story about how God can change someone's heart." --Alexander Schwartz Age 11 Jeannie St. John Taylor, the author of multiple books, lives with her husband of nearly thirty years on a small working farm in the middle of Portland, Oregon.
