“There was a lot to love about this book. Namely, the Dalton boys and their interactions with the people of the town. It’s a highly relatable story of baseball dreams, family turmoil and the relationship between fathers and sons.”—K. Jetterman
“I got the chance to review this book early on, and I was floored with this American story. Myself, I was always interested in finding a good book about fathers and sons, and this hit home run. Excuse the cheesiness. The Sons of Summer has a sort of nostalgia that really makes you think back and appreciate the good times growing up. The story focuses on the father, then each chapter centers on one brother of the focused family. Very good structure, and one of the greatest sports stories I have ever read. Bring a tissue, because it’s also a real tear-jerker.”—C. Jett
“You can easily relate to any of the characters, as you witness the relationships between fathers and sons, and brothers. You cheer for these characters when things are going well and you cry when they’re struggling. Everyone can relate to pursuing their dream….whether that be baseball, another career or something else. When I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I wanted to know what happens next, so there’s that mystery aspect to it. Novels that have all these elements are in short supply and you’ll want to keep reading!” —M. Roadman
