From Chick Loves Lit comes Recommend a… – a single book recommendation a week. This week’s topic is ’Recommend a book with a character that plays sport’.
I’ve read a few books lately that have a sports theme – I’m tempted to name The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach but I think I’ve harped on about the fabulousness of this book enough. If you haven’t read it by now, just do.
So, my recommendation is Heft by Liz Moore. It’s a lovely story that you won’t forget in a hurry. The story is told from various points-of-view, one of which is a baseball-playing high school student.
