Balls (Ball Game #1) is a quick, funny novella from Andie M. Long. It includes a British glossary of words to help us non-british readers with the jargon as well as learn some naughty British words and insults. Long’s characters were funny and witty. As a reader, I found myself rooting for Dylan as he was different from the annoying bully that he once was. Camille was a funny, strong, self-reliant woman and I couldn’t help but want her to end-up with Dylan.
