A service of the Walter Reed Middle School Library, Reed Reads Book Reviews are created by students and staff. Reviewers provide a rating: 5 = An absolute must read --- 4 = Very good, highly recommended --- 3 = Enjoyable --- 2 = Passable --- 1 = Don't bother. If you would like to join our panel of reviewers, see Mr. Bobrosky in the library. Anyone may post comments, allowing you to provide your own opinion and rating!
Boston, 1975. Richard is a baseball maniac. He lives and breathes the sport. Napoleon, the new kid from the Dominican Republic is to be Richard's new partner. Richard would show Napoleon the baseball way. Except, Napoleon's dream is not Richard's. Napoleon wishes to be culturally enlightened. The strong racism that was in Boston raises its ugly head as Richard and Napoleon sort out their differences and tests their friendship. Reed Reads Score: 4
