Books Now Available: My Most Excellent Year

Back in early December I reviewed My Most Excellent Year: A Novel of Love, Mary Poppins, and Fenway Park, a young adult title by Steve Kluger. I said that the book:

"...has a little something for everyone. If you are a Red Sox fan, Patriots fan, musical fan in general, Julie Andrews fan in particular, social activist, budding politician, budding thespian, person just figuring out that you're gay, friend of a person just figuring out that he or she is gay, or hard of hearing, this book has something for for you. And if you are a fan of romance, or you are the kind of person whose heartstrings are likely to be pulled by a 15-year-old boy who misses his long-dead mother, or a six-year-old deaf orphan with a chip on his shoulder and a Mary Poppins obsession, then you'll want to grab this one as soon as it becomes available (in March). As for me, I think it's one I'll read again. And I can offer no higher praise than that."

You can read the full review here. My Most Excellent Year should be available in stores now, and is well worth checking out. It also received a starred review from Kirkus.
