Jim and me is a really good book. Stosh goes back in time AGAIN to meet Jim Thorpe, a guy who lost his medals in the 1912 Olympics, sadly.Stosh only goes because his enemy, Bobby Fuller, asked him. But, to brighten his spirits, Stosh meets him and goes to one of his games. He first finds Jim wrestling on the floor. Then, about 80+ pages into the book after that, Stosh and Bobby almost get severly injured fighting with boys. Stosh and Bobby use trash cans to hurt the boys. To figure out more, read the book yourself.

I would recommend this book to people who like baseball and its history. This book would be good for those people because it goes back in time and it tells you how they played this game differently then they do today. This book is a good book. I haven¿t read any of his other books so it might be different if I actually would read more of his books. Shosh is the main character; Bobby is the bully that Stosh has to travel back in time with to go and meet Jim Thorpe. Jim Thorpe is Bobby¿s great grandfather. I would recommend this to people because it is a good book; it helps people understand what baseball was like back in the old days of baseball. Jim Thorpe was in the Olympics and won 3 gold medals, but he lost them because they found out he wasn¿t an amateur so they took the medals away. I didn¿t understand at first why he can time travel but as the book progressed it got better and better and I understood it more and more. Overall the book is very good. I personally liked it very much but others have their opinion. If you first read this without knowing anything about it then you would think its really stupid, because I did. Then once I got further it made more sense than it did at the beginning. This book is the bomb! Everyone should be able to read this book because it is the best book I¿ve ever read, and I think others will think this too. The age group I would recommend this book to is about 12-18. It would depend on your reading level and what kind of books you like to read. I would love to give this book to people I know but I checked it out from our school library. I really want this book for Christmas so I can give it to my friends to read, and I can read it over and over so I can understand the book way better, and be able to read while understanding and go over what I just read.
