Beanball Book Review by 8th Grader Luke June 4, 2019

Beanball by Gene Fehler is a book about a high schooler named Luke. Luke was the stardownload-4 player of his high school baseball team. Luke “Wizard” Wallace is up to bat in the last inning against their rivals. Luke sees the pitch coming and BAM he gets hit in the eye. Read to find out what happened after this tragic accident.

Beanball is a very short novel in verse. It is different from other books. It gives different perspectives of different people so you won’t get bored while reading this book. Overall, I liked this book. I felt like I was actually in the book because my name was the main character. I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. Recommend for 6th-8th graders.
