Review of "Calico Joe" By Austin Kilroy
Calico Joe, written by John Grisham is an amazing fictional novel that catches the hearts of all baseball lovers. The novel is a story about reunion of two players in a tragic accident that would eventually come to the end of their stellar careers. The book is set in Florida, Arkansas, and New York with many flashbacks to Paul’s childhood watching his dad and Joe his baseball hero face each other. After the accident both his dad and his baseball heroes career were over and Paul had no desire to watch baseball ever again. In the present Paul’s dad is sick with cancer and Paul’s one wish before his dad goes is for his dad to apologize to Joe for what he did, but his dad is stubborn as a mule and doesn’t quite get that no one really likes him especially Paul because of the rough childhood his dad gave him. There are many plot twists and flashbacks in this novel to make it all to confusing if you don’t follow carefully, the confusion though makes the novel even better because it his a harder read but at the end of the book you want to read it again and see what you didn’t pick up the first time around. Overall this is a must read for all sports lovers that love drama and how the most popular sport in america is played.

Review of "The Grace Of Kings" by Daemon Thomas
“One should always be ready to stick knives between one’s ribs if that should always help a friend.” (The Grace of Kings, Ken Liu). This is an epic book whose author does an amazing job of drawing you in and keeping you drawn in till the very last page. It’s a story of betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, and love.
Throughout the story you get to watch the characters grow up and develop and become wise military geniuses and the best of brothers. This book is full of jokes and seriousness, stupidity and wisdom, good and evil/corrupted good. I strongly suggest you read this book, I give it a 10/10, two thumbs up, would read again.
