Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A charming, touching and funny novel of the Forties in which a young boy finds an unusual — and unwilling — role model.

In 1940, 12-year-old Joey Margolis decides to focus his attention on one person: Charlie Banks, the talented young third baseman for the New York Giants. Joey is a wiseguy kid, and pretends to be dying so Charlie will come and visit him. At first the player wants nothing to do with the kid, who's a liar and a fake, but after time he's tricked, cajoled and charmed into being what he never wanted to be: a role model for another human being who needs him.

About the Author

Steve Kluger has written extensively on subjects as far-ranging as World War II, rock 'n' roll, and the Titanic, and as close to the heart as baseball and the Boston Red Sox. He lives in Santa Monica, California.
