What I am reading right now...
I sometimes get caught off guard by the books I am reading. I read books based of off pretty covers, recommendations, and listings. I don't always know what I am getting into. I have found really good books this way, others not so much.
I saw this cover all over the place the last year or two. I had no idea what it was about but I figured if it was that popular I too could probably be entertained by it.
This book starts out as a book about baseball. A young, talented player, Henry goes to college to continue his passion and pursuit of excellence as a short stop. As the story develops it become more about relationships,love, tribulations of life, and finding your own way. In one season, things start to go down hill. All of the characters reassess their lives and goals for the future.
While reading I was convinced the book was going to go one way only to have my ideas completely change after page 100 and again about page 400. This book was enthralling and suspenseful. You wanted to know the end in a way that you would feel about big events happening to your good friends and the results.
