There is something remarkable about this young man. He has touched and saved many lives just as his Grandfather Dr. Hill touched and saved mine. May he continue and teach and to love and may more and more young brothers and sisters learn to emulate, not simply the words that he offers but the undeniable love and concern that is made evident by his powerful words.
A wonderful fantasy, this book is at once an epic adventure, a coming of age story, a battle between good and evil, and a meditation on baseball. Chabon is a fantastic writer of great fiction, and the Summerland won't disappoint. And, surprisingly, Chabon is also an excellent narrator! My 13 year old son adored this book and so did I.
