Baker & Taylor
The fourth graders and fifth graders of Cherry Hill Elementary compete in a spelling bee to determine who can use the baseball field, and Sylvie agrees to be the girlfriend of Daniel Fink, who is made fun of for his artificial leg, to ensure the fourth graders win.

Cherry Hill Elementary has always had two baseball fields, one for Sylvie Scruggs's fourth-grade-and-under friends, and one for Jamie Redmond's fifth-grade crew. When Jamie's field is demolished for a kindergarten playground, the fifth graders want to take over the fourth-grade space. Finally, Sylvie and Jamie make a bet: Whoever wins the school spelling bee wins the baseball diamond too. Sylvie knows her friend Miranda will be the champion, no question, and the field will be safe for her team.

But then Josh Stetson beats Miranda in the class bee, which means he'll compete against the fifth-graders for the school title. As Sylvie tries to help Josh prepare for the big event, friendships get strained, secret deals get made, and matters spin WAY out of control. How far will Sylvie go to win the field for her friends?

& Taylor

There is only one baseball field available for the children at Cherry Hill Elementary, and Jamie Redmond and the fifth-graders insist that they have priority, so fourth-grader Sylvie suggests that they let the school spelling bee decide--and then finds herself willing do anything, including cheating and agreeing to be the girl friend of Daniel Fink, a boy who is made fun of by the other students because he has an artificial leg, to ensure that her grade wins.
When the baseball field for the fifth-graders is demolished to make room for a kindergarten playground, Sylvie and her fourth-grade teammates make a bet with their rivals that whichever team wins the school spelling bee will also win control over the remaining field. Simultaneous and eBook.
