Description: A Japanese-American boy and his family are forced to live in an internment camp during WWII. To help deal with their depression they decide to build a baseball field. During a game, the boy channels his humiliation--both from being a prisoner and from being a bad player--to anger, giving him the strength to hit a game-winning home run. (32 pgs) Ages 7-9

Ashay says, "This story reminds us of the racisim and discrimination some Japanese Americans faced during WWll. This military like confinement lasted almost 3 years. Great story and illustrations with a focus on finding your inner strength and self worth. Must have for the libary and classroom.
