We Ride Upon Sticks by Quan Barry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"It was high school. A sea of adolescence streamed by, each of us in our
own way trying to both fit in and stand out...so what if there was an
open flame burning in her locker? It was nothing compares with the dark
storms secretly and openly raging inside each and every one of us."
was only in elementary school in the 1980s so I'm too young for actual
nostalgia and too old for retro nostalgia. If you like girl power and
80s nostalgia, this is the book for you. The novel is about the 1989
Danvers high school field hockey team, and their best season ever thanks
to ... witchcraft? It is campy and fun yet I wasn't the right reader
for this book. It happens. I don't want to punish the book or author for
it though. I would recommend it to a lot of different kinds of readers,
actually, just not myself.
