Imagine having a father who left his family to live the life of a mobile mechanic. He then returns four years later and ignoring the pain he had once inflicted, walks back into your life. This is exactly the problem of 15-year old Justin who is the only freshman at school to make the varsity baseball team. As if he doesn’t have enough worries with his social reputation, family and friendships. Add to that that list an unthinkable crime which he is responsible for. The Goatnappers by Rosa Jordan explores the issues of family and relationships while compelling us to place our minds in the position of a problem-stricken fifteen year-old.

Honesty is a representation of courage and character. The decisions we make have consequences; lost relationships, lost respect. They do however come with positive resolutions too; gained relationships, gained respect. These ideas are explored in this mind-capturing novel, in our accompaniment with Justin in his discoveries of character through his worries and troubles.

Justin is a proportion of every teenager. His troubles resemble those faced by a majority of adolescents around the world; social reputations, grades, parental separation, injustice and integrity. His enlightenment of these aspects depends often on experience and failure. This is what made the events of this novel so comparable. At one point in each of our lives, we have probably been faced with problems or decisions about something that could potentially change our future. We probably have also experienced the consequences that come with many decisions in unfavourable ways. That is merely the day-to-day life of the main character, Justin.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It carefully surveyed the impact of failed relationships on children and teenagers while boldly welcoming the ideas of character and veracity. It was, all in all, a notable and inspiring sequel to the series debut (Lost Goat Lane). ( )

Freshman Justin Martin is pretty sure all of his problems in life are about to be over. He's just been made the youngest varsity baseball player in almost two decades, he found a bike to take him home after practice, and all he needs to do to make everything complete is to sell Little Billy, one of the family's pet goats. He even finds someone to buy Little Billy for exactly the right price! Justin's life is golden.

Until Justin and his siblings find out that Little Billy's new owner is mistreating him. If they leave him they'll all feel horrible and guilty forever. If they try to buy him back, Justin loses his bike and his spot on the baseball team. If they steal him... There just doesn't seem to be a good solution.

Just when it looks pretty bad, Justin's long-absent father appears, and things get much worse. Now everyone in the family is thrown into an emotional mess. If Justin doesn't figure it all out quick, and get his head back in the game, he may just lose his spot on the baseball team anyway. Not to mention the respect of his family, and himself.

Justin's life may not be something you recognize, or it may be a lot like yours. Either way, the decisions he has to make are a lot like the ones everyone deals with. How will you deal with injustice? Do you give someone who hurt you a chance to explain? Do you let them back in and risk them hurting you again? How far will you go to get what you want?

This book is about deciding right and wrong for yourself. It's about choosing what kind of person you're going to be and defining your place in the world. These aren't easy things to decide, but I think Justin sets a good, honest example. ( )
