Fantasy and Reality Collide

After reading this book with 30 8th grade students, I asked them to write a review of the book and here is a snip it of the comments from the kids! What high remarks! Kudos to you, Julianna!

After reading this book with 30 8th grade students, I asked them to write a review of the book and here is a snip it of the comments from the kids! What high remarks! Kudos to you, Julianna!

"A homerun for me! I loved listening to this book. Fantasy and reality collide, giving us an amazingly exciting book full of twists and turns. It was fun and a great page-turner, leaving me wanting more after every chapter."

"Kept me on the edge of my seat. This book had some excitement and funny parts in it. It was a bit confused at first when the fairies and other mystical characters entered the story."

"Good research about the baseball players. I don't like that the characters were fairies, but the final game was EXCITING!!!!"

"Learning facts about baseball and still hearing a mythical tale? GENIUS!!!! I stayed focused on the story through every page."

"I liked how there was a constant theme of good vs. evil present in the story."

"Remember the Titans for baseball"

"Connects to real people and struggles and makes the story heartfelt."

"At first, when it started talking about fairies, I didn't like the transition between reality and fairytale. I thought the Aunties and dad were just faking it and pretending for Oscar because he was young. When it got going, I got used to the make-believe concept, and I REALLY enjoyed it! It was a rollercoaster from beginning to end."

As a teacher, I am constantly searching for books that get kids interested and involved. The kids were begging for more of this book! I would definitely recommend this book to the young adult crowd and to media specialists for their collections. Boys and girls were enthralled!

one of the worst books I've ever read

This book was selected as the Community Read for Hingham Middle School, maybe because some of the book takes place in Hingham and concerns a student attending HMS. But the book is so poorly written, the story so boring, that my daughter and I have yet to finish it even ...
This book was selected as the Community Read for Hingham Middle School, maybe because some of the book takes place in Hingham and concerns a student attending HMS. But the book is so poorly written, the story so boring, that my daughter and I have yet to finish it even a week before school starts. She's read six other books in the time we've been struggling to get through this one together. The details are often just plain wrong (like the way the characters leave HMS on Main Street in Hingham enroute to Boston, but take 3A where they pass through "Cohasset and other South Shore towns.") When the reader can't believe even the most mundane of details, how are we supposed to suspend our imagination to believe there are fairies living underneath Fenway Park?
I am disappointed with this selection.
