In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson

Cjin, June 2, 2006

This book talks about a little girl, who just came to America. Life in America is hard, she tries hard to become an American. And finally makes friends. She gets interested in baseball and Jackie Robinson.
I'm a Chinese and I think some parts of the book are true, I like this book.
