    It's summer, and the Clam Island fairies, or "ferishers," as the North American Fair Folk call themselves, are in grave peril. War is coming, another battle in an ancient conflict, a struggle against the Fell Smith and his power of Anti-life. He and his host of demon engineers, kobolds, and warriors have sought to destroy the fairies since time began. When the Clam Island band sends for a champion, they get an 11-year-old boy named Ethan Feld.

    "Can a baseball game save the universe?"
    Overall

    Fantasy and baseball? An odd combination to be sure, but Chabon pulls it off. I've passed this book up at least five times because of the baseball connection (I am not a fan of the sport.) Finally, I chose to listen because of my husband's love of The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Chabon's Pulitzer winner from a few years back.

    Summerland wasn't anything I expected, and I loved every minute of it. The story is sunny and fun and makes you remember being a kid on a warm, green summer day. I still don't like baseball, but I can appreciate a great story.
