Entitled - Deford, Frank
Entitled is one of the best novels I've read this year, and I've already read a few. If you like a good story, and enjoy baseball, this book is a must read. It was free when I downloaded it, but it's $1.99 now for the Kindle. Howie Traveler barely made it to the big league as a player. He was one of the almost good enoughs. But as a manager he's got his chance. His second year is not going well, and then he spots his star player in a compromising position. Jay Alcazar is a true natural. He's the big star on Howie's team. He's been so good so long that he feels entitled. The questions is, entitled to what? Maybe he's gone too far this time. The back stories that give the reader insight into Howie and Jay are what's fascinating about this book. Not too many books can make you laugh out loud and then cry for joy, but this one does. Very highly recommended.
