Hey everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend. Can you believe February is coming to a close? I am one of the people that thought January took FOREVER to come and go, but I feel February has flown by! I do wish the weather would lighten up a bit, though, and stop snowing!

Anyway, this pick for me is a highly anticipated read of mine and I am really looking forward to picking it up!


Mercy Rule by Tom Leveen

Published: February 20th by Sky Pony Press

Danny’s parents yanked him from the art school that let him wear a kilt and listen to bands that no one’s heard of. Now he’s starting sophomore year at the public high school–the one with the gymnasium at the heart of the building and the glorified athletes who rule it all. The smart thing would be to blend in, but Danny has always been about making statements.

Brady just wants to get out. Go to college, play football, maybe reach the NFL. He definitely wants to stop waiting for his deadbeat mother to come home, sleeping on park benches, and going to bed hungry. But first he has to lead the team to the championships. It all adds up to a lot of stress. So who can really blame him when he and the football team turn their aggressions on the new freak? Even the quarterback needs to blow off steam sometimes.

Coach turns a blind eye to his players’ crimes–because this year, they’re going to States. But maybe if Coach had paid more attention they could’ve caught it before it all happened. Maybe it could’ve been avoided.


With quick cuts between a large cast of unforgettable characters, and razor-sharp plotting, Tom Leeven takes readers on a countdown to an inevitable, horrifying act. This gripping novel offers an intense, smart perspective on the tragic, toxic mindsets behind the celebrated American sport and the monsters it creates

        I think the worst thing is going to be reviewing it without actually giving anything away… It might just come out as a ramble that won’t make a lot of sense. Like my currents notes on it XD
