If your kid plays/ed a travel sport, particularly baseball, just click add to cart!!! This book made me laugh, smile, and just left me feeling lighter somehow.
This book is about the relationship between a mother and son and their introduction to travel baseball at age 9. There were no steamy scenes but there were several romances going on that had you rooting for some couples and cringing at others, and all the while there was a 9 year olds journey into Travel Baseball, and a mother’s journey about watching her son grow up.
Sam was so happy to be invited to play Travel Baseball with a REAL summer team, but the experience wasn't exactly what he thought it would be. His mother, Shannon, has her own problems with Travel Ball, culture shock doesn't exactly cover it. As she battles to not turn into one of THOSE parents...the parents that are rooting for a 10 year old to drop the ball, or engaging in brawls in the stands about a little kids ball game; she is faced with her ex husbands antics, his new hot (and barely legal) girlfriend, her own attraction to an opposing teams coach, former friends turning on her, learning what snack-shack time was...and all this before the first tournament!?!?!?!?
This story was great! I laughed at all the real life people it reminded me of (why exactly do parents feel the need to facebook status every move their kids make?) But I also really enjoyed the way it made me remember my sons first few years in travel ball. I sincerely hope there is a sequel!!! *hint hint*
Great for sale, credit or *gasp* PURCHASE (yeah I liked it that much folks!)
