Grapes are among the most desirable and best-known fruits, prized for their beauty, their succulence and varied flavors, their noble metamorphosis into wine, and their more utilitarian roles as sources of fresh juice and tasty jellies. For most growers, the triumph of harvesting fragrant clusters of dusky-bloomed grapes in rose, blue-black, amber, purple, or light red bunches is its own reward--a test of gardening skill.
Mitchell Wells may not survive eleventh grade. He really only has one friend, his best friend, David. His normally decent grade point average is in limbo due to a slightly violent, somewhat inappropriate Claymation film. And girls . . . well, does hanging out with his sister count? When David tells Mitchell he's gay, Mitchell's okay with it-but it still seems to change things. Since David's not out to anyone else, the guys agree to be set up with prom dates. But then one of the most popular girls in school decides she "must" date Mitchell, and he goes from zero to two girlfriends in sixty seconds. From his pending English grade to his floundering friendship to his love life (the one thing that's taken a bizarre turn for the better), Mitchell is so confused, he'll be lucky if he lasts another week in high school. And then there's the prom . . .With a wickedly funny voice and a colorful cast of characters, Steven Goldman has written a novel for every reader-even those who "like" high school!
SOUR GRAPES is about helping fault finders, complainers and those that have an excuse for their misfortunes. In the Old Testament the people of God blamed their parents for their pitiful lives. Today it's no different, a lot of us point fingers and play the blame game. "I can't be successful because I was born on the wrong side of the tracks." Or "I can't trust anybody" or my favorite."The devil made me do it!" God shows us that as Children of God success is what we bring to everything we do and prosperity is just one of the pay offs. "What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, the fathers have eaten SOUR GRAPES, and the children's teeth are set on edge?" Ezekiel 18: 2
