Grade 6-8–A sweetly told story about the budding friendship between two young people and their understanding of one anothers differences. Bogie is a blind teenager with a lot of insight when it comes to taking chances, seeing the world, and eventually mastering the game of golf. Birdie has asthma and lacks the confidence even to ride a bike, until she finds her purpose: assisting Bogie with his game. When they consider the idea of entering a golf tournament, Bogies family secrets are divulged, helping to clear up some of the mysteries surrounding his mothers death and his fathers lack of interest in golf. This novels appeal is enhanced by humorous, lively dialogue; the innocence of the main characters; and the positive portrayal of their relationship and disabilities. An interesting read.–Hope Marie Cook, Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic
