You know your reading a good book when you find yourself not being able to put it down. However, I did not experience this when reading Extra Innings by Robert Newton Peck. This book was 215 pages too long. Young Tate who was harmed in a plane crash, struggles to play the game he has loved and mastered since a very young age. Dispite losing his Mother, Father, great grandparents and Sister in the crash, Tate stays strong. Taken care of by his Aunt Vidalia who reassures him numerous times of her struggles in the past and how she overcame them. This upside down story captures many moments from the early 1900s, and many racial conflicts between blacks and whites. Also, there is quite a lot of baseball terms not the everyday reader would know. So I suggest you to be a baseball fan if you are going to read this. Although Tate will slowly heal, does he have enough to heal inside and find his inner strength to play ball again? Read it and find out for yourself.Was this review helpful?
