The DH by John Feinstein - ESSENTIAL

Feinstein, John The DH, 293 pages.  Knopf (Random), 2016.  $17.  Content: G (there might have been 3 swears, but I really wasn’t paying attention for once).

Now that basketball season is over, Alex is eager for baseball.  Matt Gordon was declared ineligible after the events of the football season, but he argued his case and is now also on the team.  When Matt proves to be a pitching and hitting natural, he head starts to swell, causing problems for Alex both on the team and between him and Christine.  Disaster is looming for someone – but I am not giving away any secrets!

Watching Alex through his freshman school year has been very exciting.  I will drop one spoiler – Stevie and Susan Carol make an appearance!  Keep writing Feinstein.
