I checked out this book on the cover/title alone. I am an avid cardplayer, so I was very curious about this book. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the book was about the game of bridge, a game that I have been curious about for some time but could never find anyone who knew how to play. The story is about a young adult named Alton, who is hired by his blind uncle to turn cards for him so that he can continue to play cards despite going blind. It was a nice story and all, but I was more impressed by all the bridge talk. I feel like I have learned a little about the game!
