Active vs. passive

Passive- The ball was hit by the player.

You are placing more emphasis on the ball

Active- The player hit the ball.

Active is a clearer way of emphasizing the subject, rather than the object.

It is always safer to write in active rather than passive.

I don't know anything about Judy Blume, but good luck.
