    I've been following Antony John's career for a while, and while I've enjoyed all of his books, my favorite of all time was Five Flavors of Dumb. He just captured those characters so beautifully and I laughed and cried along with them and felt like we were friends by the end. Mascot is ...

    Oh my god, you guys. I haven't found a book yet that delves into cell phone use while driving, and this one does it SO POWERFULLY HOLY CRAP. It's terrifying and deadly and oh-so-common in this day and age, and Mascot addresses it in the most horrifying and realistic way possible. Give ...

    Sometimes books soar like a plane in the opening chapter, then slowly lose altitude and crash. Not this book. This book is like a symphony, opening with a few instruments. The next thing you know the entire orchestra is involved and your mind is blown by the beauty of it all. The s...

    I shouldn't be surprised by how much I liked this - I am always a sucker for a good book about an average middle grade kid going through some less than average life experiences - but I really am glad I gave this one my full attention. These are good kids with good hearts - even the so ...

    DNF. 150 pages in. The "clever irony" of a kid who was a baseball player, then in a car accident, now in a wheelchair is a thought experiment that acts as if actual disabled people don't exist. And he doesn't seem to know how disabled bodies work - he's serving as catcher for someone p...

    Noah is up to his neck in challenges. A car accident killed his Dad and left him in a wheelchair. All of his world has turned upside down. And yet there is still school- he in the seventh grade- and his favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals to cheer for. How will he get along...

    This sports story set in St. Louis capitalizes on the recent trend of including characters with significant disabilities and their life stories. Noah plays the role of former Little Leaguer who loses the use of his legs in a car wreck. Notably he is not a Pollyanna character, the wreck...

    More reviews and book-ish content @ Club Book Mobile & Andrea RBK Mascot by Antony John was a middle grade novel that was a wonderful story of redemption. I read about the plot of this one, and I knew I wanted to read it. What I didn't know was that it was about the St. Louis Ca...

    Initially, I was a bit hesitant about this book. What can I say, I do judge books by their covers. And this one just wasn't doing it for me. Plus, when I read the description, I was immediately reminded of Natasha Friends How We Roll , which I absolutely thought was a delight, and was ...

    Anyone who has listened to me talk about books in any capacity knows that I absolutely adore middle reader books. There are a lot of reasons why, and this book helped me realize yet another one! This book helped me put into words why I appreciate young protagonists so much - and it's b...

    If you are looking for a book for middle school students with universal appeal, look no further! Noah lives in St. Louis - which is perfect since he loves baseball - or used to love baseball before an accident that paralyzed him and left him without his father. He is having a tough ...

    I read Mascot with my 11 year old (5th grader) and we both adored it. Noah Savino is a great protagonist. We meet Noah after he's been paralyzed in a car accident that also killed his father. (We later learn how that all went down and let's just say I'm now super careful not to to have...

    Mascot was a well-written book with meaning for every age group. Basically we can either let tragedy define us or we can elect to turn the corner and find a new path. Noah was a star catcher on a really good baseball team. He thought about baseball morning, noon, and night and his...

    DNF. 150 pages in. The "clever irony" of a kid who was a baseball player, then in a car accident, now in a wheelchair is a thought experiment that acts as if actual disabled people don't exist. And he doesn't seem to know how disabled bodies work - he's serving as catcher for someone p...

    Noah is up to his neck in challenges. A car accident killed his Dad and left him in a wheelchair. All of his world has turned upside down. And yet there is still school- he in the seventh grade- and his favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals to cheer for. How will he get along...

    This sports story set in St. Louis capitalizes on the recent trend of including characters with significant disabilities and their life stories. Noah plays the role of former Little Leaguer who loses the use of his legs in a car wreck. Notably he is not a Pollyanna character, the wreck...

    Sincere-feeling look at a boy coping with spinal injuries, grief and facing his demons. Paralysed in a car crash that killed his dad, Noah is angry. He's angry at his Dad for dying, at his body for not being able to play baseball and for not getting better. In a story encompassi...
