really liked it
bookshelves: biography, graphic-novels, juvenile-fiction, non-fiction

As a librarian I'm a bit confused as to which collection this book should belong in. Fiction or non-fiction? Maybe biography? Children's or YA? I have no idea since this graphic novel is a brilliant little amalgam of all of the above.

It should be noted that this book is really more about Jim Crow than it is about Satchel Paige. Instead, the baseball great is really an effective tool for looking at the time period in this narrative. But seeing the story through someone else's eyes is probably more meaningful than if we saw it from Paige's perspective.
