Heat

Heat - Mike Lupica Though I enjoyed it overall, the book was pretty predictable. Michael lies about his father being home and someone has to jump in and pretend for him--I've seen that mini-plot in too many Disney Channel episodes and sit-coms already. His life slowly falls apart because he can't play baseball and do what he loves most--seen that a lot too. He offends one of his friends and it takes lots of courage to apologize--again, seen that in a lot of books and movies and TV shows.

There's not a lot of originality left in the world. It's not that I can't forgive clichés; I just don't enjoy it when I can see almost everything coming in a story. It's not the best sports book I've read, but it wasn't the worst either.

You may notice that I originally gave the book a higher rating... I tend to be over-enthusiastic after I finish a book, so my rating often goes down once I consider it more. And yeah. Ta-da...
