A revisit to Brooklyn during the days of Jackie Robinson, PeeWee Reese and the Brooklyn Dodgers makes this book enjoyable for adolescents as well as adults. It made the readers relate to the realistic tense situations between a young boy and his immigrant father living together in a very different world then the one the father left behind. The new world is Brooklyn and anyone who has experienced Brooklyn, young or old will enjoy this book. My ten year old, baseball loving son enjoyed the story, the flavor of Brooklyn in the days of Ebbets fields, the chemistry between the young boy and his war veteran friend and the baseball scenes which bring to life The Brooklyn Dodgers.
