Bryony never thought of herself as privileged. Until she started at Merimeri High, that is. In the new school, and new city, Bryony discovers she's a rich white kid. Being clever is despised, causing trouble is a ticket to popularity. There's always softball, but even there the rules have changed. Bryony's no quitter, but how far will she go to fit in?

Home Run explores the widening gap between rich and poor, and the two teenagers' battle to bridge it with their friendship.

Home Run was a finalist in the senior fiction category of the AIM Children's Book Awards.
