A Different Diamond was inspired, in part, by Amanda Tsujikawa, a junior at Juanita High School in Kirkland, Washington. Amanda plays second base for Juanita's baseball team. She is also the starting shortstop for the Woodinville Reign, a 16u select softball team from Woodinville, Washington. Like most teenage girls, Amanda likes music, movies, and cars. She has younger twin sisters named Lindsay and Emily. She is an excellent student and would like to be an orthodontist, cancer researcher, marine biologist, or attorney. She graduates from high school in early summer 2012.
