The book Elle of the Ball is about a girl who is 6 feet tall in 7th grade. She seems especially oversized because everyone else in the grade is 5 feet tall. Elle has to do a dance performance with the rest of the 7th grade in front of parents. On top of that, Elle doesn't get the position she wants as point guard in basketball. She really needs some help with her height!

Opinion: 

The book Elle of the Ball was a great book because the plot was an everyday plot about being too tall. Something I didn't like about the book was that the author called some characters by their last names. I also didn't like how some characters didn't show up very often throughout the book. However, I liked how the author didn't give two characters the same trait. A final thing that I liked in the book was how common words like "said" weren't used too often. I would recommend this book for 7-9-year-olds because of the important theme of diversity and the simple vocabulary.
