Sisters that are much too small
To throw a catch or bat a ball
Are really not much good at all . . .
Frances doesn't think her younger sister Gloria can be her friend. Besides, Albert is Frances's friend. But when Albert has a no-girls baseball game, Frances sets out to prove to Albert a thing or two about friendship—and what girls can do. Along the way, Frances discovers that sisters can indeed be friends . . . maybe even best friends.
