Strikeout of the Bleacher Weenies by David Lubar - ADVISABLE

Lubar, David Strikeout Of The Bleacher Weenies, 205 pages. Tom Doherty Associates, 2016. Language: PG (16 swears, 0 ‘f’) Mature Content: PG (crude language) Violence: G. 

This book is a collection of short stories. In Same Bird brother and sister, Isabel and Avi go on a hiking trip. They find body parts from the same bird, saying "Same bird," each time, however when put together, the bird cuts them down. In Haunting Your thoughts Ruthie and his family move into a new house. The house focuses on each of the family members' fears. Ruthie is afraid of monsters, which ultimately leads to his and his family's doom. 

I liked the different stories, along with the various points of view. My favorite chapter is Parasites, however I enjoyed many of the stories. The sort of mysterious element in the book kept me very interested. However, I wish the chapters were longer.
