Teen Book Review: Blind Your Ponies

When Sam Picket comes to the quiet little village to hide from the violence and madness that have shattered his life, he discovers people silently bearing their broken dreams and unbearable sorrows. Can they be aroused by the most unexpected and least likely source in their midst? This is a great book. It’s made for adults, but has teen appeal since it involves a high school basketball team. It shows how even a small bit of hope can lead to the celebration and jubilation that comes with sports, and how it can bring entire towns together. Read the full review.
