What happens when a young girl with a Hall of Fame baseball pedigree breaks the family mold and follows her dream to become a soul singer? Roxy Rogers: Your Destiny Is Calling lets children of all ages see that their families will love them just the same when they pursue their true passions in life. Everybody in Roxy's family--from her grandparents (played with Joe DiMaggio and Jackie Robinson), to her parents (pro ball players), to her big sister (won a softball Gold Medal)--famously played ball, and Roxy is next in line. The only problem is that Roxy dreams of singing soul music like her idol, Aretha Franklin! A historical addendum provides information about the Hall of Fame baseball players who turn up in the book, as well as Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul music. Additionally, a fun treasure hunt for clues about Roxy's true destiny runs throughout the book, giving readers an enhanced, interactive experience.

A U.C. Santa Cruz banana slug alum, Emily launched her writing career with posts at various film and television magazines in Los Angeles. After a break in the action to raise her daughter, Emily and her college sweetheart founded WOW! Music Studios, a successful children’s music instruction school in Mill Valley, California. But just like the character in her book, Emily’s true passion was something entirely different; she always dreamed of writing children’s books. Inspiration was everywhere for Roxy Rogers: Your Destiny Is Calling. While coaching her daughter’s youth softball and basketball teams, Emily eventually came to realize that the world of sports was a passion of hers, not her daughter’s, who really wanted, of course, to be a world-famous singer. The plot of the story was right in front of her, and the surrounding details would be cultivated from her lifetime of love for the rich history of Major League Baseball and her daughter’s love of music.Review:
5-Star Review from Readers' Favorite
The author, Emily Siskin-Toy, has done a clever job of weaving a story around the premise that what parents want for their children may not always be what they themselves want. Beautifully illustrated by Brian C. Krumm...It would be good for a parent to read to a child, as well as an older child reading alone. --Jane Finch
