Review of "Lucky Seven," by Matt Christopher

Review of

Lucky Seven, by Matt Christopher

 Four out of five stars

 Christopher is best known for his series of books of adolescent sports fiction where the main characters are young people. This is in contrast to many of the other main writers of sports fiction for young people where their stories feature adults, often professional players.

 This book contains a set of short stories within his usual genre of young people at play. Most of the stories feature the standard sports like baseball or football, but there is a notable exception. The last story, called “Full Throttle,” is about racing model cars on tracks.

 The stories are in the usual Christopher style of working hard, playing fair and having some sort of moral. They are all easy to understand, both in terms of the basic plot and the lesson that Christopher is trying to impart. This book is one that you read for pleasure and leisure.
