Book Description: The Dream Girls—Hattie, Crackers, and Beverly Jo—are back with the same determination and resolve they displayed in Between the Lines. This time, it’s Crackers who has a dream. She has oodles of talent, can outshoot any guy, and she wants to be the first girl on the boys’ basketball team. Everybody knows she’s the best player at school. The problem is, the rules say: No girls allowed on the team. Ever. But the Dream Girls have challenged old-fashioned notions before, and they’re not about to give up now. Beverly Jo rocks the world with an ingenious plan, Hattie sets the wheels in motion, and Crackers gives her all. For this threesome, nothing is impossible.

Beyond the Lines Excerpt:

Four months ago, I thought my life was over. But just look at me now. I’ve gone from a Catholic school kid to a public school student and from a knock-kneed scaredy-cat to a mostly brave girl. Not only that, but I’ve made the best friends ever. Beverly Jo is not just the smartest girl I know, but the friendliest, and Crackers, well, she’s the life of the party, whether there’s a party or not.
Which brings me to our 5th grade holiday break celebration, a sleepover at my house. The aromas wafting down the basement stairs right now awaken me in the best possible way—with a gigantic grin on my face. There’s not a better smell in the world than bread frying in a custard of milk, eggs and butter, crackling bacon, and warm maple syrup.

I stretch my arms over my head and untangle my sleeping bag from the cocoon its coiled around my legs, peeking out to see if either of my friends’ peepers are blinking yet.
