Many reviewers loved this book and it is heading mock Newbery lists across the country, but it was just OK for me. The period (50's) was nicely evoked and it certainly packed a sentimental punch, and I am a big-time baseball fan, but something was amiss. Maybe it was the lack of spirit from this young girl; she was completely subservient to her parents and her family. Then again, maybe that's what it was like growing up in the 50's.
