In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
”Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share”.
Here’s to celebrating books that strike my fancy every week!
Book Talk: Baseball, can baseball save his family? That’s what Peter is hoping when he takes a risk. He learns more about his Dad and has a little hope for the future.
I appreciate when you anticipate something for an entire book and an author doesn’t really provide you with an outcome if it makes sense… Loved reading about lovely family that has a pretty happy life until a devastating event that changes almost everything. This book tears you up as you read the struggle Peter Lee has trying to communicate with his parents, recover from loss, and find a new direction for his life. Quite recommended.
Goodreads Summary: “From the award-winning author of THE GREAT WALL OF LUCY WU comes a beautifully written and poignant story of family and loss, healing and friendship, and the great American pastime, baseball.
Twelve-year-old Peter Lee and his family are baseball lovers, who bond over back lot games and talk of the Pittsburgh Pirates. But when tragedy strikes, the family flies apart and baseball no longer seems to matter. Is that true? Peter wonders if just maybe the game they love can pull them together and bring them back, safe at home.”
About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
