Marisol is struggling to find her niche as a Latina newcomer in a small community. She acquires a series of successes but finds her position as a beloved softball coach under constant threat by the powers that be in the community. The consequences of "thinking like a woman," as one character says, force her to adjust her goals and dreams.
Rounding Third is the story of Marisol, a young Latina newcomer to a small community who struggles to find her niche as a volunteer softball coach and paid art teacher. During the three years of the story, she acquires many coaching successes and new friends, but she is forced to adjust her goals and dreams as the community stalwarts--the real "insiders"--work against her successes. Navigating a world that seems to be filled with allies or enemies challenges Marisol to preserve her sense of self-worth within a community of people whose complexities resist such dichotomization.
