Safe at Home is the story of Selena Garcia, a young Latina girl growing up in southern Arizona. Listening to the advice of her mother, Selena quits playing baseball with the boys in favor of softball with the girls. As a pitcher, rather than a first baseman, she is a dominant force, finding her comfort zone and making friends in the process. But her world is rocked when she wakes up one morning to find that her mother has suddenly passed away. She stops hanging out with her friends. She no longer wears ribbons and bows in her hair-the details that Mom used to help her with. She gives up on softball, too. A year later, with help from her brother Carlos, something amazing happens that turns Selena's life around. She finds herself back on the softball diamond, and she is better than ever. Does she have what it takes to get a softball scholarship and be the first Garcia to attend college?
