Anger.  Hate.  Bias.  So you ever wonder where those feelings and emotions come from?  Why do they seem to afflict one person and not another?  Twenty girls - ten on one softball team - ten on another team - try to make sense out of an act of violence against one of their own.  "The truth" can be a hard thing to discover as it is channeled through twenty filters and interpreters.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
