Change Up: Mystery at the World Series is another in a series of John Feinstein works about two kid reporters, Stevie and Susan Carol, working big sporting events. It seems wherever they go, controversial stories follow them, and they unearth them. You can just tell that something mysterious and weird will happen as the book starts with the Washington Nationals, hapless in the 1970's and in the few years since returning to Washington, advancing to the World Series. That mysteriousness is in the form of Norbert Doyle.

The book was a great read, and once I started, I did not want to stop. Any teenage sports fan would become invested and interested in reading this. There is even a little romance throughout, so people who are not too interested in sports would like the book. John Feinstein didn't hit a home run with this book, but he hit a solid triple. ( )

It’s late October and the underdog Washington Nationals have just defeated the New York Mets to win the National League championship for the first time in 76 years. Sniffing out a story in the Nationals’ locker room, 14 year old “kid reporter” Stevie Thomas meets Norbert Doyle, a quiet, reserved pitcher recently called up from the minor leagues. Doyle’s back story is the stuff of dreams and Hollywood movies. After losing his wife in a gruesome car accident, he toiled away unsung in the minors for close to 20 years while also raising twin kids as a single dad. And now here he is, in his late 30s without a single major league win under his belt on his way to the World Series.

But, to Stevie, something’s not sitting right about Doyle’s story.

What’s worse, Susan Carol’s hiding things from him, including the details of her budding relationship with Doyle’s son.

Encouraged by his mentor at the Washington Herald, Stevie launches an investigation that takes him three hours away to Lynchburg, VA where he learns the toil of real shoe-leather reporting – analyzing police reports, conducting interviews, fact-checking, and barely escaping a vicious dog attack – and slowly begins to chip away at the dark secret encased in Norbert Doyle’s past.

But, what is he after? And what does it have to do with baseball?

John Feinstein’s latest, Change Up: Mystery At the World Series, is a feast for baseball fans. One of the things so exciting about Feinstein’s books is the way he applies his passion for sports, knowledge of the games, and experience as a real life sports reporter to the page. When he describes a game play by play the writing crackles. He captures the mounting tension of a possible no-hitter, the magic of witnessing baseball history. He sits you there in the press box where seasoned reporters trade off-the-cuff sports anecdotes, and he brings alive the locker room tension between print journalists looking for a relevant story and the boorish TV guys looking for a cheapo sound bite.

It’s great fun. Fans of Feinstein’s other “kid reporter” sports mysteries (Last Shot, Cover-Up, and Vanishing Act) will relish another well-plotted and gripping book led by Stevie and Susan Carol. But, with Change Up, Feinstein takes his usual whip-smart game to a higher level by focusing on the demands of investigative reporting, making it an excellent read for anyone who dreams of working as a writer one day.

A lot of the book reads like a tribute to the hard, unglamorous work of print journalism. As Stevie is drawn deeper into Doyle’s back story he learns the ropes of what it takes to be a great reporter – the inner fortitude and ingenuity you’ve got to tap when you hit a wall, the rigorous, painstaking process of gathering accurate information, and a commitment to your readers, the public, who deserve nothing short of the truth.

Can you believe a story where two fourteen year olds not only get to cover the top sports stories for two major newspapers, but also get to do serious investigative work for the papers as well? Stevie and Susan Carol are covering the World Series for two major D.C. papers, and stumble upon a potential criminal coverup. This book is a mix of sports, teens given adult responsibilities because of their exceptional abilities, and even a little romance. Totally unrealistic, but fun. ( )
