In small town, post-World War Oregon, twenty-one 6th grade girls recount the story of an annual softball game, during which one girl's bigotry comes to the surface.

Bat 6 - that's the softball game played every year between the sixth-grade girls of Barlow and Bear Creek Ridge. All the girls - Beautiful Hair Hallie, Manzanita who gets the spirit, the twins Lola and Lila, Tootie, Shadean - they've been waiting for their turn at Bat 6 since they could first toss a ball. This time there's a newcomer on each team: Aki, at first base for the Ridgers, who just returned with her family from a place she's too embarrassed to talk about. I will do my best to address your concerns including 100% refund of your money.

The year is 1949. In the little towns of Barlow and Bear Creek Ridge, there is a traditional softball game that has been played every year since 1899. The game was started because the men in the two towns were angry at each other and refused to speak. The women in the two towns decided to play a friendly softball game against each other in order to get the men talking to each other again. It worked, and became a tradition. The game in later years came to be played by the sixth grade girls every year, and the girls now always look forward to it. It is an honor and a last opportunity to do something for their towns before seventh grade, when they all go to the same consolidated junior high school.

This book is told by the members of both teams, and tells the story leading up to the Bat 6 game and the things that happen after the game. At first both teams expect it to be a normal year, but each team then gains someone new. On the Bear Creek Ridge team, it is Aki, a girl who used to live in town but had spent years in a Japanese internment camp during the war. On the Barlow team it is Shazam, a strange girl who comes to town without a mother or father, to live with her grandmother. Over the course of the novel her secret comes out, and the reader can see that there might be trouble at the game.

I liked the idea of this book. It is a good story about the aftermath of war, and what happened to families once the war ended. I liked that there is a wide diversity in the characters. There are rich and poor, those whose fathers fought and those whose fathers refused to fight, people who benefited from the GI Bill, people who didn't seem to be affected by the war, people with prejudices and people without.

I didn't like that the author tries to write the story in the way sixth-graders would really write. The girls have run-on sentences, their thoughts are disconnected, and they don't use proper grammar or punctuation. I found that very distracting and unnecessary.

Bat 6, by Virginia Euwer Wolf, is a fun but heart-breaking tale of life a few years after WWII from children's perspectives. Bat 6 is a softball game played by the 6th grade girls of two neighboring small-town American elementary schools, Barlow Road Grade School and Bear Creek Ridge Grade School. There is a new girl on each team, Shazam on the Barlow Road team, and Aki on the Bear Creek Ridge team. Both have been greatly affected by the war. Sadly, the scars of the war will not heal so easily when the girls meet for the first time at Bat 6. It is going to be one great game!
To read this book is to have a look into what life was like after WWII, which is an interesting time period for a child today. In these two towns, being rich is owning a refrigerator. Now it is owning an estate, or a huge business. Life was very different back then. Something surprising to me was the amount of rights women had back then. That was more than 60 years ago, but the women did have many rights. The women in the book were on the town council, actively participated in church activities and the whole Bat 6 game was a bunch of girls playing softball. That is one similarity to daily life back then. They also had hate crimes. The hate crimes in this time period were committed against Japanese-Americans, because of the war between the USA and Japan. The Japanese were put into camps for their safety against hate crimes. One of the main characters, Aki, is Japanese-American and had been put into a camp. Another reason to read this book is to see the world through the eyes of little girls. One goes on a journey with them while each individual girl puts the pieces together about the war. The girls may be small, but they have a huge concept to comprehend. The two new girls, Aki and Shazam, have the most to learn. Sadly Shazam's father had been killed at Pearl Harbor and she holds it against the Japanese, in other words, she holds it against Aki. The girls each tell the many tales of 6th grade from their own perspective. It is a good way to see different points of view. This book provides a whole new look into the world.
One less appealing aspect of the book is its format. There are entries from each girl and when deep into the book, the switch between entrees is not very noticeable. It is confusing when two different points of view are read, and one thinks they are from the same person, but they are not. Another confusing aspect of the format is that the chapters switch from the girls on one team to the girls on the other team. Despite the format flaw, the plot is inspiring and Bat 6 is well written. It is highly recommended!
