Calico Joe – so good!

There are some books that once you start reading you don’t want to put down – Calico Joe is one of those books.  My wife got it for me for my birthday last weekend.  I started reading it Tuesday night around 7:30 pm, read most of it before going to bed and finished it the next morning.  Just a great story.

I don’t want to reveal any plot elements for those who have yet to read it, but it is a book based on baseball, but is about so much more than baseball.  You read about the dreams of a young boy who had a father who pitched in the major leagues and how those dreams were suddenly changed by one eventful day at a major league game.  You discover how this young boy, his father and Calico Joe’s life all become intertwined both on and off the baseball diamond.

If you are a fan of John Grisham, or baseball or just of a good book, get Calico Joe.
