Beans is a recount of a young boys Saturday morning. We are taken through his every steps as if we are inside his head experiencing his Saturday morning. We feel the blistering cold as he rides up the steep hill on his way to his Saturday rugby game, we breathe hard as he does when he sprints down the field for the ball and we experience the satisfaction of riding home with a can of drink in one hand and a downhill slope to guide us home.
I loved this story as Patricia Grace made me feel part of it. I love Patricia Grace as an author because she involves her reader and creates imagery that makes you laugh, cry and squirm sometimes all at once!
