Son of a former pitcher and an avid baseball fan, Brian gets his dream summer job: the bat boy for his favorite team the Detroit Tigers. When it seems like his summer cannot get any better, his all-time favorite player Hank Bishop is signed to the team. At the beginning, Hank is cold and yells at Brian a lot, but in the end they become friends. At the end of the summer, Brian is in for the best weekend of his life when the Tigers have a home stand with Hank currently sitting at 499 career home runs. I really liked this book because I could relate well with the main character. Brian is the same age as me and we both like baseball.

Frederick MacCauley documented that fluctuations of the stock market is analogous to the chance curve that could be obtained by throwing a dice (MacCauley, 1925). Oliver (1926) and Mills (1927) provided evidence that the distribution of stock returns is leptokurtic in nature. Random movement and inability to predict stocks prices is found in a number of studies during 1920s and 1930s. Cowles (1933) analyzed stock price prediction made by the 45 representatives of financial agencies during 1928 to 1932 and found that forecasters cannot forecast movement of stock markets. Working (1934) mentioned that stock return behaved like a number in the lottery.
The book I have chosen to review is Boy 21, a fictional read that is written by Matthew Quick. Quick is a New York Times best-selling author debuting in novels such as The Silver Linings Playbook and Love May Fail. To best describe this book, it is a captivating read that is comforting for the mind, as it canvasses the raw and unflinching life of a high school senior who displays love for basketball and life relationships. Furthermore, set in a troubled Belmont city of Philadelphia, Quick incorporates the presence of mobs and violence which is captivating towards the reader and audience. I was intrigued about how the novel was written through Finley the main protagonist, which was Quick’s childhood perspective of life in Philadelphia and his passion towards basketball.
