J-A-C-K, I'm Team Jack all the way! Seriously though, Dahlia Adler's newest book, Home Field Advantage, is going to be an instant favorite. It's like your favorite pair of well-worn jeans, the biggest bowl of mac-n-cheese, or the snuggliest sweater on a warm night.

Repeatedly. - Jaye Robin Brown, author of The Key to You and Me

Dahlia Adler's Home Field Advantage will break your heart and then bind it back together with turf tape.

This book will make you cheer. - Lev Rosen, author of Camp
