really liked it
bookshelves: 2009, ya-fantasy
Read in July, 2009

As an avid member of the Red Sox Nation who looks at the 2004 World Series as a long awaited miracle, I had to read this book about Reversing the "Curse". I usually avoid most sports stories but this one was truly unique...combining an element of fantasy with the historical fact (a curse in and of itself) of the undercurrent of rascism that pervaded baseball for far too long. I would definitely recommend this to fans of sports fiction... Red Sox fans or not. (Well, maybe not Yankees fans!) ;0) This one falls in the gap between junior and YA fiction. Any 5th grader and up would probably enjoy it.
