Read in August, 2005

I am a fan of "coming of age" stories, New England of past years, and a Red Sox fan so this book touched all three buttons and I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Since I spent ages 10-15 in a small NH town I could relate to the setting and the offbeat characters. I read the book sitting on the dock of a camp on Lake Winnepesaukee, having arrived in New Hampshire to attend the 40th reunion of the graduates of that small town school.

While the reviews below give some of the major plot outline, I enjoyed Mosher's ability to create the setting, the use of some fairly interesting plot twists and "red herrings" keep it interesting as it moves to an easily anticipated conclusion.

Still, it brought back some great memories for this member of the "Red Sox Nation".
