    " This book was really suspenseful and it was enjoyable to read.Stevie Thomas a report for the Washington Post is trying to figure out the history of pitcher for National's Norbert Doyle after he pitched in Game 2 in the World Series. This book was really interesting because I didn't know whether Norbert was telling the truth. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes sports and like mystery books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/12/2014

    " Feinstein's books are popular at my school, even though they are geared toward junior high students. What I liked about this plot line is that the young sportscasters decided NOT to print a story and widely discussed their ethical choices behind their decision. How often does that happen in print? Seriously, I've read a lot of books, adult and young adult, and can't remember reading about a story that wasn't printed. So kudos for Feinstein for writing something new to me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie Markus | 1/11/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book! It is a mystery featuring two kid reporters named Stevie Thomas and Susan- Carol Anderson. Their assignment from the Washington newspapers is to cover the World Series. During their coverage, Stevie meets a player named Norbert Doyle. Norbert is a 38-year-old who's been on every minor-league team ever. He's basically traveled everywhere. Now, he's on a major league team in the World Series. But, as Stevie learns more and more about Norbert Doyle, he discovers there's a dirty secret the world doesn't know. His question is if he should tell or not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt M | 9/16/2013

    " I loved this book. I liked it a lot because it is full of suspenseful moments and i never knew what was going to happen next. Every chapter was a cliff hanger. I also liked this book because it was a mystery or detective fiction book. I think John Feinstein is great at creating suspenseful times. "
