Who's on First?

Mark Geller, Author HarperCollins Publishers $14 (60p) ISBN 978-0-06-021084-7
With Cousin Amanda's wedding approaching and Carol still without an escort, brother Alex decides to play Cupid by setting up his older sister with two potential suitors: his best friend's cousin Leon and baseballcoach Willie. When Carol apparently falls in love with the less desirable of the two men (who Alex has discovered is a ``creep'' and ``pathological liar''), the result is an entanglement of mixed identities and miscommunications. Written mostly in dialogue, this short comedy of errors offers more entertainment than substance. Narrative voices are engaging enough to hold the interest of even the most reluctant reader, but some young adults may find themselves yearning for less slapstick and more subtlety. Ages 11-up.
