Drawn In, by Sioux Trett

Cover

This may very well be the most challenging review I’ve yet to write for this blog. Granted, I’ve only written a handful or so of them, but this one is difficult. What makes it so difficult? I enjoyed this story so much, and it has several plot twists, that I’m afraid to do a disservice […]

To Nowhere, by C.E. Wilson

To Nowhere Final Cover

If you tell most teenagers not to do something, chances are that they’re going to do it anyway. Wyatt should have really thought it through before telling Lyris not to go into the strange room in the abandoned “haunted” house next door to where she and her parents just moved. If only she had listened… […]

07Phillies

Lucky number seven, which is why I’m posting it on 7/7. With the exception of being at Fenway Park for the 14-inning Game 5 of the 2004 ALCS victory against the Yankees, this very well may have been the best baseball experience I’ve ever had. Saturday, July 24, 1999, 7:05pm Veterans’ Stadium Philadelphia Phillies 4, […]

The Last Policeman, by Ben H. Winters

I’ve mentioned in a previous review that the student body at my school votes on one common summer reading book. Throughout the year, titles are submitted to the English/Language Arts department, and by the end of the year, they’ve whittled the list down to between three and five choices. Over the past few years, the […]

A Dream of Fields 6: The New York Mets

06Mets

Three guys. Three games. Three days. One weekend. One wonderful ROAD TRIP! Friday, July 23, 1999, 7:40pm Shea Stadium New York Mets 5, Chicago Cubs 4 I’d always wanted to do this—visit multiple locations on one trip. Granted, the real dream is to do a summer-long road trip and go to all 30 MLB parks, […]

Every Day, by David Levithan

Every now and then, you come across a book—a book you don’t want to put down, a book that changes the way you look at things, a book that when you’re through with it you’re both upset that it’s over but overjoyed with what you got from it. I recently read a book like that: […]

A Dream of Fields 5: The Montreal Expos

Baseball north of the border! On a trip to French-speaking Canada, my then-wife and I caught a ball game in Montreal. That trip? Our honeymoon. Vendredi, 3 Juillet 1998, 19H05 Stade Olympique Montreal Expos 8, Florida Marlins 4 Yes, it was our honeymoon. We drove to Quebec City—one of my favorite cities in the world, […]
