Heart of a Champion is about a boy named Seth who is in middle school. He meets a kid named Jimmy at the baseball field. Jimmy is a really good baseball player and starts teaching Seth how to play the game. They practice together all the time and Seth becomes dedicated to becoming a good player so that he can make the High School Varsity team. Seth never had anyone to teach him how to play baseball as a kid since his father passed away when he was seven. He is determined to win the school championship so that his father would be proud of him.
I liked this book because it showed that Seth's determination and dedication made him successful. I am a baseball fan and enjoyed the point of the story being told with a sports theme. I would recommend this book to kids that like sports who are middle school age.
