Not as good as i thought it would be.

Great Youth Sports Book

This book is slightly predictable, but that doesn't make it a less enjoyable read. While the plot tends toward guess-able, the great characters keep the book alive and exciting. Things tied up neatly at the end of the book, but I'd come to like the characters so much that I was just happy at the way things ended up. Lupica did a great job bringing these things about, putting characters you might not expect together to make it a truly satisfying ending.
