48 Hour Book Challenge — T-5 Hours!

I only have 5 hours left so I’m going to make this short and sweet!

Book 3 — Dramarama by E. Lockhart

5 things I loved:

1. Sadye!

2. Summer Love

3. Summer Camp

4. Music

5. Drama

Book 4 — The Batboy by Mike Lupica

5 things I loved:

1. Baseball

2. Reading a book for youth that deals with doping issues in sports and does so in a thoughtful/insightful manner.

3. Being reminded of my childhood dream to be a mopgirl for the Knicks (don’t hate me–I grew up in NY).  Mopgirl is probably not the correct term for this person, but they sit on the court under the basket and quickly mop up after players shoot free throws.  Not quite as glamorous as a batboy, but I loved the idea of being SO close to the players and the action of the game.

4. Reading ANOTHER wonderful book set during a transformative summer.

5. Really, really good sports writing where you can easily picture every play.

[Just a reminder: I will be posting full reviews for each of the 48 Hour Book Challenge novels beginning Monday.]
