GENERAL read for Battle of the Books clubLIKES appreciated the ambivalent ending Life is ambivalent and I appreciate when literature reflects that I don t usually like sports books but this one used sports as a vehicle to discussing familial themes As a Taiwanese American I always love me some good Taiwanese American protagonistsDISLIKES There were a lot of micro aggression comments that went unanswered I wish those were addressed at least once by one of the characters The plot twist around one of the characters on the baseball team felt out of nowhere and was distracting to the central story It felt like a different plot altogether The only reason why this was not rated higher was because I wanted There was so much room for richness and pathos and character development but the writer didn t take advantage of it

The Way Home Looks Now review » eBook or Kindle ePUB Ight idea and if it can even help his family feel less broken Can the game they all love eventually bring them back together safe at homeAcclaimed author Wendy Wan Long Shang brings her signature warmth gentle humor and wisdom to this poignant story of healing and loss family and the great American pastime baseball. E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelinePeter Lee s family loves baseball cheering on the Taiwanese team when they come to a world championship in the early 1970s When his older brother Nelson is killed in a car crash however his mother becomes so completely dysfunctional that she can t even get up off the couch to cook dinner leaving Peter his younger sister Elaine and his father to fend for themselves Peter is grieving for longer than necessary as well and feels as if everyone at school doesn t talk to him because of his misfortune Eventually he decides that is he can play baseball the way that Nelson did perhaps he can entice his mother to go to a game and she will be able to regain her joy in being outside Since there are too many players Peter s father offers to coach a team even though Peter thinks that his baseball experience must be limited based on the poor players that his father picks There are some surprises in the line up which are uite interesting and everyone but Peter s mother seems to improve a bit In the end there may be a little bit of hope for the womanStrengths I loved The Great Wall of Lucy Wu so was really looking forward to this one Shang writes riveting prose and her women s libber twist and 1970s setting is fantastic There s enough baseball in this one that sports fans will pick it up Weaknesses I was HUGELY disappointed in the ridiculous grief of the mother It is not an option for parents to submerse themselves in their own grief about a dead child to the point where they can t take care of their living ones No excuse and this made me SO angry I didn t just want to slap the mother I wanted to punch her in the face The father didn t help either letting the mother get away with it Argh Not okay people Not okay What I really think Despite my disappointment I will buy this one because I never have enough baseball books it s nicely multicultural and has a great twist in it But still We could have avoided the idiotic mother altogether
