Saturday's with Sid - Blog Hopping
The Batboy, Terry O'Reilly, JMS Books
Seventeen-year-old Thad Stevens loves baseball -- he’s loved it for as long as he can remember. Thad’s dream of becoming a batboy comes true when he’s chosen to be on the squad for the Buzzards, a local, semi-pro baseball team.
His duties put him in constant contact with his idol, shortstop Iggy Hernandez. Thad struggles with his growing attraction to the handsome ball player.
One day Thad accidentally discovers Iggy has a secret life. What will Thad do with this new information, and what implications does it have for the young batboy and his relationship with the man he admires?
I loved this book! I love sports and baseball is right up there at the top of my favorites, so it wasn’t hard to read. I could easily relate to Thad’s holier than thou parents and his need to hang with Iggy. I also loved how Mr O’Reilly walked a tightrope and didn’t make Iggy into a dirty old man. Pick this book up and give it a go! Doesn’t hurt that the cover art is HAWT!
RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries This book was given to us by JMS Books. Many thanks.
