"The book is mostly about bullying. I definitely gained more compassion for Gnash when I found out about his home life... As much as I disliked him at the beginning, his jerkiness is endearing by the end. He's still a jerk, but he asks permission before getting revenge on behalf of Jock... and doesn't do it when Jock says no. Not a bad start." (Alyssa Campbell, Librarian, Netgalley Reviewer 2017-01-13)
Well-written and full of relevant kid friendly information, Tagged Out, is an excellent read. I especially enjoyed Grant's description of the action during the games. Reading it made me feel like I was right there watching the game and feeling what the kids feel in success and in failure. Every ball game is a combination of both success and failure and that is what makes watching and playing fun and challenging. Grant reflects the attitudes and behaviours of today's young teens and made each of her characters real. Middle school kids will really enjoy reading this novel.

Once again, Lorimer Sports Series uses a popular team sport as a vehicle for effective social commentary. Jock is comfortable in his sexuality, although he confesses to Nash that he has never been sexually active. This is a challenging topic for the target audience, age 10 to 13. Another home run for Lorimer Sports! (Patricia Jermey, Resource Links 2016-04-01)
