it was amazing
Recommended for: baseball fans, writers, and maybe people from iowa?
Read in May, 2007

A "grand slam." (Don't groan too loudly!) An easy read (it was in the young adult section of my library) but the prose is really lovely. The story is similar to the movie that was based on it, Field of Dreams, but has more characters, who are all much more interesting.

I learned about the Black Sox scandal and the class tensions behind it. Interesting!

I highly recommend it. I'd offer to lend out my copy, but I don't own it.
