Super For Readers--Even If They Are Not Baseball Fans

Baseball, especially the Dodgers, is featured in this book about a girl in the 1950’s. It is historical fiction because the baseball details are from actual games and because it involves facts about the Korean War. The information about the after-effects of war may be something a parent would want to discuss with the student.
