Once again, Konigsburg has written a book that will stick to my brain and heart. It's utterly different from her other books - and yet, the same. The same complex characters, truth about life, realistic portrayal of family and relationships and growing up. Konigsburg did an excellent job of writing a book about growing up for kids that resonates with adults as well. Mostly, I think, because even though I am an adult by age, I still get lost like Mark did - and it is as comforting to an adult as to a child to read how things turn out all right in the end. I highly recommend this, and all of her other books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440400341, Paperback)

Mark Seltzer thought he had enough aggravation studying for his Bar Mitzvah and losing his best friend.  It's the last straw when his mother becomes the new manager of his Little League baseball team and drags his older brother, Spencer, along as the coach.

No one knows what to expect with a mother for a manager, but soon Mark and the other players are surprised to see how much they're improving due to coach Spencer's strategy and helpful hints from "Mother Bagel."

It looks like nothing can stop them from becoming champs--until Mark hears some startling news!

Mark Setzer tells about his troubles in general and in particular his misfortunes on the little league team managed by his mother and coached by his brother.
