Read in February, 2012

Fan of baseball? Not a fan of baseball? Doesnt' matter-this book is a must read! This is so much more than a book about baseball. It's about family, heartache, broken promises, disappointments, growing up...mostly forgiveness and resiliance. You ache for Paul Tracey, his sister and Mom. You are so so disappointed in his father, MLB pitcher, Warren Tracey. He is far from a role model; even farther from father of the year. How could this emotionally charged story have a positive ending-what's the saving grace? Grisham remarkably pulls it off-gets to the heart of the matter...making you root for, and get, that perfect, satisfying ending... but perhaps, not without a few tears!

If you would enjoy a novel that imagines what would happen today if an MLB pitcher threw a bean ball that fatally killed the batter,please see A Pitch For Justice an e-book.It examines the peer pressure of the "code' upon a rookie Phillies Pitcher who ultimately is charged with murder.Please see the Tampa tribune review here.
