This is a wonderful read!!! The book takes place in the early '40's and involves a Jewish boy (his father has left the family) with an outstanding imagination. He's living in an Italian neighborhood and is being picked on. He picks as his role model a young baseball player and tries all kinds of ways to get his attention.

I really, really enjoyed this book. It's about baseball, the war, growing up, young love and friendship - not to mention my favorite character, his quirky aunt Carrie.

One of my best reads of this summer.

A fast read but a delightful laugh-out-loud journey along the way. Rather sad ending but you see it coming so can prepare.

I really enjoy Kluger's writing style and his bold characters. This was such a sweet story and a very powerful conclusion. I loved reading it.
