#61: Bleachers

I will admit I have wanted to read the book Bleachers by John Grisham for awhile but I chose this one from my bag of library books because it was short. I am actually going to read the books I checked out in order from the shortest to the longest so I can get my numbers up before 2007.

Anyway, Bleachers was a good book by Grisham, although not his typical lawyer book. It was the story of a legendary high school football coach and all of his players. When the coach, Eddie Rake, was just days away from death many of his players from 34 seasons of coaching came back to pay their respects and go to his funeral. The main character Neely Crenshaw, and all-American quarterback, came back to his town after 15 years and has to fight some of his memories from his football days. It was easy to get into the story and enjoy the characters. Overall: good book.
