Cherry Hill Elementary has always had two baseball fields, one for Sylvie Scruggs's fourth-grade-and-under friends, and one for Jamie Redmond's fifth-grade crew. When Jamie's field is demolished for a kindergarten playground, the fifth graders want to take over the fourth-grade space. Finally, Sylvie and Jamie make a bet: Whoever wins the school spelling bee wins the baseball diamond too. Sylvie knows her friend Miranda will be the champion, no question, and the field will be safe for her team.

But then Josh Stetson beats Miranda in the class bee, which means he'll compete against the fifth-graders for the school title. As Sylvie tries to help Josh prepare for the big event, friendships get strained, secret deals get made, and matters spin WAY out of control. How far will Sylvie go to win the field for her friends?
