The storytelling was vivid and I felt like I was right in on the action. I especially liked the rescue scene, but all of the book was really well written. It was also great to see how the family all supported each other, and how that made things better for all of them. It got me wondering what I would do if I was Connor. I was sad when the book ended, because I really got to like some of the characters, and I wanted to read more about the family. I really recommend this book!
This was a really good story line, with great writing and really interesting characters. There were some excellent descriptions and I could really imagine what things looked like. I really enjoyed reading it and didn’t want to stop. I’m looking forward to reading the next two books in the series.
I really like the way this story developed. This might be fiction, but I could really this happening. The star (main character) of this book, Cameron, is really trying to do the right thing, in spite of some really terrible obstacles. I really felt like I knew what was going on with Cameron and it was amazing to see how he showed how things could be better. I could really identify with the main character and I wish I had his patience, fortitude and courage. The author says there is supposed to be a sequel, and I really want to read it. This was a great read!
Talk about a dream! This is a must read, about working hard to make your dreams come true.
The book starts off a little slow, but pay attention to the explanations about car racing, because you’ll need that knowledge later as you follow the story of Shannon Kelly, a young man with a passion and determination to succeed. By the time you get through the first 10% of the book, you’ll be hooked.
The author has created a great cast of characters and gives the reader a truly great insider’s view of car racing all wrapped up in a terrific story.
This is a great Baseball story. It is a story about loss and triumph. It is story about a teenage boy and his younger brother who never gave up. What they achieved was beyond their wildest dreams, but only because they worked hard to make it happen. There were many parts of the book that stuck with me, and I’ve looked one up. It is the teenager, Devin, speaking to an audience and relating his father’s advice about growing up. He says, “You become a man when your mind moves away from a childish outlook on life, when you prove to yourself that you control your own destiny, and when you show respect not only for others but for yourself and the person that you are. You are a man when you not only dream but take steps to fulfill your dreams.”
This a great book for anyone who even knows the basics of baseball and for anyone who wants to see how dedication, perseverance and courage can change a life.
A review at Barnes and Noble called this book inspiring. I totally agree. This author has done some seriously good writing, and I really enjoyed this book.
