As part of Connect Your Summer, the Game On and Green Thumb badges have teamed up to do a flower tournament! Only one flower can be crowned the best flower of summer, and it's up to you to decide.
Each week during Connect Your Summer, two flowers will duke it out for your votes. The flower with the most votes will continue on in the tournament. This week, we're pitting dandelions against violets!

Blockade Billy by Stephen King — I'm a fan of Stephen King in general, but haven't been able to get into his baseball stories. This is a short novella, pretty baseball-centric, not as much horror - either the gory kind or the psychologically creepy kind - as I'm used to from King. Overall, underwhelming for me, but might be more appealing to baseball fans.
