Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs

author: Ron Koertge

Ron Koertge, master of snappy dialogue and a deft poet, offers a fast-paced, sympathetic story that interweaves two narrative voices with humor and warmth. Fourteen-year old Kevin juggles his passions for poetry, baseball, and two very different girls in this funny, insightful sequel to Shakespeare Bats Cleanup.

“Koertge's pleasing variety of verse — a villanelle here, a sestina there — is a seamless fit for his story and characters.” — The Horn Book (starred review)
