This is my youngest child, my son Ben, who is an attorney in Portland, Maine, and the father of my two grandsons who are almost 9, and 11.  It has been a long time since Ben was a college athlete and baseball star.  But he has, for years, enjoyed playing on local teams---this last summer in an over-30 league. He had quite a record this last season and as it turned out, ended up with a batting average of over 600, and placed #8 in the nation for teams of all ages. He has just been notified that he is to represent New England in the over-30 World Championship in Florida, where teams from all over the world will compete for the title over four days in mid-November.

Fun! Yay, Ben! We'll all be rooting for you!

Son Ben 2

I think a lot of people don't know it is a trilogy. I was recently reading a great book called 'The Ultimate Book Guide' eds Leonie Flynn, Daniel Hahn and Susan Reuben and it has a review of 'The Giver' by author Lynn Reid Banks. Lynn Reid Banks gives a great review but ends it "a gripping, and at times shocking, book, which cries out for a sequel." I love the books as a trilogy and I think readers who don't know about 'The Messenger' and 'Gathering Blue' are missing out.

I just recently bought "The Giver", because I had read it when I was in elementary school as a reading assignment. It was one of my favorite books during that year and it had a sense of great worth in my memories. I just finished reading it for the second time today! It is as curious, intellectual, and imaginative as I remember it. Now that I have realized it is part of a trilogy I will definitely read the other books. I feel like I am revisiting my childhood! And I can relate to Jonas, because sometimes we have to leave our childhood behind.
Thank you.

I challenge anyone who disparages teenage boys to read this and not reverse their opinion. What a stalwart thing to do--stepping up to the plate to correct a literary absence in the WikiSphere!
