Beach Reading

A Book Review
by Mrs. Sower, FHS Librarian

Early Autumn
by Robert Parker
New York: Random House, 1981

Classic. Detective. Novel.
No one is a cool as Boston Private Investigator Spenser. He runs at least 5 miles a day, quotes Shakespeare and Frost, boxes, has a whit sharp as an heiress's stiletto, and he could charm a raccoon out of the garbage. When a pretty blond asks Spenser to help her get her son back from her ex-husband, Spenser collects the 15-year-old kid with no problem. But when he realizes that Paul's parents are only using him as a pawn, Spenser does his own kidnapping.

I admit that I am totally biased - I LOVE detective stories. Reading a good mystery feels like sipping hot coffee on the back porch under chilly gray autumn skies. So, needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Spenser's so clever that I actually stopped to reread a few sentences just so I could take a moment to enjoy his crackerjack whit. This title is on the English Summer Reading List for students entering Grade 10, and it is the perfect beach read.

Bottom Line:
Love detective stories? Don't miss this one. Never tried the genre? This is an excellent start.

Unsportsmanlike Conduct

By Dan Tursky (Class of 2011)
Professional Tennis player David Ferrer was participating in the Sony Ericsson Open Quarterfinal match against Mardy Fish when a spur of events turned the match upside down. A wailing baby in the stands sparked Ferrer’s frustration as he lost his composure and decided to lob a ball up in the general direction of where the noise of the infant was coming from.

Though his action of technically throwing a ball at a helpless baby may have been an act of frustration and it may have been unintentional, it was a completely ruthless and an unnecessary act that brings a question to mind that has been coming up more recently in the past few years. Are athletes and fans alike beginning to go overboard in incidents involving sports and setting poor examples for younger viewers across the globe?

Troubling Police Questions

by Queen Moore (Class of 2011)
Once in a while you’ll hear of a policeman accidentally gunning down a victim in Boston or New York, but no one would have suspected it to occur in our neighborhood.

By Shea Lessing (Class of 2012)

As spring approaches and the amount left of school dwindles down, for seniors and juniors in Framingham High School this can be a stressful time. It is a tradition every year that a prom and cotillion is made for seniors and juniors. Everyone wants to be a part of this enjoyment but for some the costs can really play a part on these expensive events.
