Vancouver Sun[Kinsella] can juice up sentences the way a sly pitcher can load up
a ball with tobacco spit to make it break like an apple rolling off a table.
Sure enough, Mike's never played better than on the Grand Mound Greenshirts, and he even begins to fall for the town's charms, including a certain Tracy Ellen Powell. That is, until he starts to suspect that when the good citizens of Grand Mound lure young men into their town, they have more on their minds than just baseball ...

Like the rest of world, I fell in love with 'Shoeless Joe', a story that was whimsical, funny, sad, and heartwarming. 'Magic Time' is no different, full of insight and warmth. Mike Houle's character could be anybody playing baseball in college or the minor leagues. He's a boy that loves baseball, sex, beer, the typical college kid. Kinsella puts us into his life, and the ride is nothing less than pure joy. I wouldnt'reccomend this book to middle schooler's, as the content in it is considerably mature at points, but for a high school senior or junior, I say go for it. You won't be dissapointed, and you will walk away smiling.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
