    What a great book! Noah is stuck in a wheelchair, thanks to a car accident that killed his dad, and is angry that he can't play baseball anymore, angry that he can't move his body like he used to, and angry that everyone is trying to make him be positive when he can't find anything to ...

    Increasingly there has been a push in children's literature for strong female characters and books that celebrate girl power. Even though strong female characters have always been the dominating force in children's literature (Jo March, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Anne Shirley, to name a few...

    Schneider Family Book Award-winner Antony John does not disappoint with his second book about a disabled teen and his first middle grade book. Noah, a middle school student who must use a wheelchair thanks to the accident that killed his father, is as realistic as seventh graders come....

    Noah is a 7th Grader who used to be a big baseball fan...he was a great catcher for his Little League team, and he and his dad bonded over Cardinals games. But then came the car accident that killed his dad and landed Noah himself in a wheelchair. Now he's pretty angry at the whole wor...

    I shouldn't be surprised by how much I liked this - I am always a sucker for a good book about an average middle grade kid going through some less than average life experiences - but I really am glad I gave this one my full attention. These are good kids with good hearts - even the so ...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus Noah Savino lives in the St. Louis neighborhood of the Hill, which is great, because he loves baseball. Well, he used to. After a devastating car accident, he is in a wheel chair and trying to figure out a new normal. This doesn't include Logan, his for...

    I've been following Antony John's career for a while, and while I've enjoyed all of his books, my favorite of all time was Five Flavors of Dumb. He just captured those characters so beautifully and I laughed and cried along with them and felt like we were friends by the end. Mascot is ...

    Sometimes books soar like a plane in the opening chapter, then slowly lose altitude and crash. Not this book. This book is like a symphony, opening with a few instruments. The next thing you know the entire orchestra is involved and your mind is blown by the beauty of it all. The s...

    Antony John captured so many topics in this book, whether as focal points or minor tidbits. There were two boys with disabilities, for completely different reasons. And I loved the spirit and determination Dynamo had. There was a huge warning not to be on your cell phone while operatin...

    Fun, heartwarming story about friendship, second chances, and perseverance. Noah narrates this story that starts after the accident that kills his father and puts him in a wheelchair. He is back at school and just wants things to go back to "normal." He just wants to forget what happen...

    I read Mascot with my 11 year old (5th grader) and we both adored it. Noah Savino is a great protagonist. We meet Noah after he's been paralyzed in a car accident that also killed his father. (We later learn how that all went down and let's just say I'm now super careful not to to have...

    Oh my god, you guys. I haven't found a book yet that delves into cell phone use while driving, and this one does it SO POWERFULLY HOLY CRAP. It's terrifying and deadly and oh-so-common in this day and age, and Mascot addresses it in the most horrifying and realistic way possible. Give ...

    DNF. 150 pages in. The "clever irony" of a kid who was a baseball player, then in a car accident, now in a wheelchair is a thought experiment that acts as if actual disabled people don't exist. And he doesn't seem to know how disabled bodies work - he's serving as catcher for someone p...

    This book was a really good solid juvenile fiction book. Noah and his friends are such strong characters. I love them all. I don't usually expect much out of juvenile fiction books because juvenile fiction is for younger readers but this book really surprised me and I really enjoyed it...
