Choosing Up Sides
To Luke's father, baseball is "the devil's game" -- but to Luke, it's salvation.
Preacher's boy Luke Bledsoe is a left-hander in a right-handed world. Moved from town to town, he's spent his whole life feeling like an outsider. Until by chance he steps on a baseball field and discovers he can pitch. Really pitch. There's only one problem: his father. Reverend Bledsoe believes that the left side is the side of Satan and the baseball field is the Devil's playground. Luke has spent his whole life trying to please his father. Will he choose to give up the game he's come to love -- or turn his back on his family?

It is called its title because Luke has to decide whether he wants to be Christian, or on the "Devils Side." I do not like how this book is all Christian. Read full review
Review: Choosing Up SidesUser Review - Gabriel Valdivias - Goodreads
It is an interesting book. Even for someone that is not in to sports. It will make you laugh and even groan at some parts, but this book is one that should really be in a young readers collection. It has segregation, old school religious values, and just topics that are not really covered today. Read full review
