Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 6-8-Lenny loves baseball and dreams of being an announcer someday (because he's certainly never going to be a player). It's just a dream until his two best friends, Mike and Other Mike, convince him to enter the Phillies' Armchair Announcer contest. On the night of the big game-the biggest opportunity of Lenny's life-an up-and-coming player drops dead on the mound. It's written off as a fluke thing, but Lenny and his friends find it suspicious. Everyone who was in the stadium that night is a suspect, and anything could be a lead in this fast-paced murder mystery. The plot is fairly straightforward and the mystery is not difficult to solve, but the characters are engaging enough to carry the plot. Sports fans will enjoy the humor and will attempt to crack the case alongside the intrepid investigators. A good choice for most collections, particularly those needing more mysteries.-Brandy Danner, Wilmington Memorial Library, MAα(c) Copyright 2011.

More About the Author

Josh Berk is the author of THE DARK DAYS OF HAMBURGER HALPIN (Knopf 2010), named a best book for teens of 2010 by Kirkus Reviews and Amazon.com. It was also awarded a Parent's Choice Silver medal, a starred review from School Library Journal, and a perfect 10 from VOYA. Reviewers called it witty, sardonic, delightful, and "a genre-bending breakthrough." (SLJ) His second comedy/mystery YA novel is GUY LANGMAN: CRIME SCENE PROCRASTINATOR (Knopf 2012). Kirkus says: "Hilarious wit and serious gloom blend seamlessly as Guy wades through the year after his dad's death..." Josh has also written a series of baseball-themed mysteries for younger readers. Look for STRIKE THREE, YOU'RE DEAD - the first in the "Lenny & The Mikes" series in 2013.

Josh has previously been a journalist, a poet, a playwright, and a guitarist (mostly in bands known for things other than fine guitar-playing). Visit www.joshberkbooks.com for more information or Twitter.com/joshberkbooks for too much information.

All of his books have been wonderful and right on target. He writes for the Young Adult market, and pass or by them again for my grandchildren and nephews. I am an adult , and love every element of his story telling! It is a fact that he knows a lot about baseball and the home town teams, because it is apparent in this story.

Format: Hardcover
Berk delivers a funny, fast-paced mystery about the zany riches of baseball: eccentric players, outrageous facial hair, insane rivalries, know-it-all fans, trick plays and rare stats. If you're a fan, you'll know exactly what Lenny Norbeck is talking about. If you're not, you'll realize what you're missing.

Great book. Only one problem. It is addictive. Not much action but there was enough information that in the middle of the book you were able to figure out who dun it
