Stealing Home

Ellen Schwartz

After a family tragedy, ten year-old Joey is forced to move from the Bronx to Brooklyn. Asides from how living in a Jewish neighborhood effects his life (he’s bi-racial, and this novel takes place in the 1940’s), he’s also faced with having to accept a new hometown team. And he’s always been a Yankee’s fan. But he’s in Dodgers territory now. Lots of great history in this one, including a lot about Jackie Robinson.
