This review is from: Always a Catch (Hardcover)
This is a terrific coming-of-age tale about football, music and finding yourself, suitable for any teenager. Sent to a stodgy prep school by his dad, Jack finds a way to overcome the many challenges, from old-world faculty to teammates on steroids. And he gets the girl. Great YA. A must-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic, compelling, great read, March 18, 2009
Richmond has captured the feel of a small-town disaster through some compelling character portraits, and a great deal of believable realism. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Literary Treasure, December 8, 2008
Jessica Helfand's book is nothing less than a living, breathing slice of American history: a beautiful, funny, exciting living collage of who we are, where we came from and what we're all capable of being -- flawed, human, deep and joyously alive. On a design level, it's a visual feast. On a literary level, it's full of stories of the famous and the anonymous, each one riveting. Botton line: the scrapbooks she has unearthed, and their fascinating minutiae, make up nothing short of the perfect archaeological find for anyone interested in/fascinated by our collective national heritage; you could literally spend the next twenty years, if you wanted to -- and I think I will -- poring over each and every one of the things in these scrapbooks, and marvelling in the stories they tell.

As for the flap over the author's apparent intent/attitude concerning scrapbooks in general: isn't it completely irrelevant? Judge the book not by its author, whoever she is. Check out the book. It's a marvel. It's a museum between two covers. It's a journey through time. It's a hoot. It's a gem.
