As the daughter of a successful Major League pitcher, Charlie Hastings has baseball in her blood. Unfortunately, being the only girl on her high school baseball team, Charlie has always been just one of the guys.

When her best friend, and secret love of her life, asks another girl to the prom, Charlie is devastated. She’s tired of being overlooked by boys because she’s not like other girls. Suffering a massive identity crisis, she decides to hang up her cleats and finally learn how to be a girl.

But with only two weeks until the state championships, the Roosevelt High Ravens can’t afford to lose their star catcher. Team captain Jace King makes her a deal: Don’t quit the team, and he’ll help her become the girl she’s so desperate to be. After all, he’s got four sisters, one of whom happens to be a cheerleader. He knows a thing or two about girls. (And if he can win her heart in the process, all the better.)

From the bestselling young adult author of Cinder & Ella, V is for Virgin, and the Avery Shaw Experiment comes a new sweet romance that's sure to leave you with all the feels! Girl at Heart is a clean and wholesome sports romance that will leave you with warm fuzzies and an itch to watch a baseball game.


I have been patiently waiting for the next Kelly Oram book, and it was worth the wait.

Charlie, the only girl on the baseball team. Has pretty much been one of the guys and soon realizes. That her best friends don’t see her as a girl, and she wonders what she has been missing out on. And she decides to jump all in and figure out who she is. This story will make you laugh, make you cry and feel so much joy for these characters.

I loved this story and read it within one sitting. I missed Oram’s stories because it makes you feel all these emotions and reminds you of the joy of reading. You could feel what Charlie was feeling, the hurt, and it was fun being able to read about her journey.

Overall, I have to give this five Boundless stars. I can’t wait for more from Oram.
