Home Run from Heaven Reviews
This book is about a 15-year-old boy, his dog, his family, and his passion: baseball. He cares immensely about his dog, family, and friends, which makes him such a loveable character. It's nice to read about a boy who is on the "high road" and has faith in God and Heaven. His dad dies from cancer, a straining situation for anyone at any age, and he holds his head high with the help of his dog, Thor. This is a heartwarming story for anyone that enjoys reading about cute silly puppies, baseball, and faith that our loved ones who have passed on are really watching over us all the time.
Homerun from Heaven is a coming of age story of a young man who loses his father to cancer and has to become the role model for his family. He has a younger brother, a little sister, his mom, and a newly acquired dog who they name Thor. As a freshman, Dylan makes the varsity baseball team and develops into a team leader while leading his team to the State Championship. He believes this would make his former major league ballplayer father proud of him. The story wasn't bad, but at times it was hard to tell if the story was about Dylan or his dog Thor. The book chapters ran together and there were no page numbers, Although this could be the result of self-publishing. It almost felt like I was reading one of Dylan's Journals or one of his diaries. The performances that Dylan puts together in the state tournament seem a little far fetched as well. In 4 games, he hits 3 walk-off homeruns + another 3-run shot. Two of the walk-off homeruns are grand slams. He hits for the cycle twice, turns a triple play, and steals home for a game winner. This kid is going straight to the pros. All that being said, it does have a nice religious theme to it about love and faith and quotes some scripture. The book just needs a good edit and it will be a great young adult book for baseball fans and teens. In compliance with FTC guidelines, I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
I love God and I love baseball. It was also a nice story. Written for 12-14 year old boys is my guess. Pretty sappy and predictable. Also some editing mistakes such as referring to the Hudson team as Bellevue when they played Perkins and a few misspellings.Dylan is a freshman baseball player whose dad was a former big leaguer. His dad dies of cancer. Dylan, his little brother who idolizes him, his little sister and his mom get a dog named Thor. Thor as a big puppy causes a lot of problems. The story culminates with the state championship baseball game in which unexplainable things happen.Get it for your young son to read and enjoy.
I'm biased. It's my book. My first book. I still have plenty to learn, but I enjoyed writing this. It is about faith, family, baseball, a crazy puppy, teamwork and love.
Not a bad story maybe more for younger preteen boy. Has a lot to do with love and faith.
