Format: Paperback
I was very excited to read this book, as it was written by a former teacher of mine. However, I was concerned that I would not be able to relate, as the book was written for and about adolescent males. Boy, were my concerns way off! I very much enjoyed this book, and was able to relate to several of the issues, even though I have been out of high school for a decade. It was also interesting to learn facts about the Iraq war that I had either forgotten, or never known in the first place. The way in which Stanfel inserts facts makes them interesting rather than tedious like a text book would be.

Although I am an avid reader, and am used to typical book formatting, I found the formatting of this book refreshing and easy to read. The way in which Stanfel utilizes email and journal entries as the format of the book makes the book a quick, easy, and entertaining read.

Overall, I very much enjoyed this book, and when the end came I was sad to know it was over. This was one book I could not put down, and read it cover to cover in less than 2 days (a difficult feat when you have a child under 2). I have already recommended this book to several people, and highly recommend it to anyone who loves a great book.

I read it ahead of sharing it with my children. I found myself staying up late... turning off the game to find out what happened to Mercer. I enjoyed the winding road of Mercer's life and looking at the world from different perspectives. Have your children read this book... it just might give them a new perspective that they have it pretty good !

I had the pleasure of reading this book as my last book of 2013.

Mercer is a typical teenager. He loves to play football and dreams of playing for his favorite college team, the University of Iowa. He loves to screw around with his buddies and likes to talk about cute girls. Initially, Mercer is also selfish, full of himself and immature. Unfortunately, Mercer's dad has been sent to Iraq to fight in the Iraq war. His dad decides to connect him with an Iraqi teenager who is working as a translator for the American military. Mercer meets Ahmed. Ahmed makes an incredible difference in Mercer's life. Throughout their email exchange, we see Mercer mature and grow as he realizes that there is more to life than himself.

I think this is a fantastic book for young adults and shows how we often need to see beyond our own lives to the world around us.

My 11 year old daughter liked the email format of the book and the ending. She also thought the wording was very descriptive.

Compelling and interesting insight about how a Christian high school football player copes with the absence of his father during the war in Iraq. I could not put Out @f the Pocket down and have been telling all my friends in 6th grade to read it. Don't hesitate to buy this one. It will not disappoint!!

Out Of The Pocket really helps you imagine how hard it is to have someone fighting in another country. I've always been thankful for my family but this book got to me and told me to cherish my parents at all times because you never know what could happen to them at any point in time. As a teenager myself, I was able to connect with Mercer in many different ways, more than I could with any other book. I really encourage teenagers and young adults to read this story!
