More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
To quote KLIATT's Sept. 1998 review of the hardcover edition: In this, his first novel, Ritter takes us back to 1921, to a small town on the Ohio River, when baseball was just catching fire. Luke is the thirteen-year-old son of a fundamentalist preacher who believes that Luke's left-handedness is evil, the work of the devil. Fortunately, Luke's uncle is supportive of Luke, disagrees with the father's views and is cheerfully left-handed himself. The uncle is a sportswriter who introduces Luke to the excitement of the major leagues by taking him to a game to see Babe Ruth hit. Details of both the religion and the baseball do seem accurate. For the most part, Luke goes along with his father's view of things, feeling terribly guilty when he disobeys. His friends know that he has an incredible throwing arm and they persist in persuading him to join the local baseball team. One day he does pitch a game, and his fastball stymies the best hitters. News of this skill appears in a local newspaper and his father's rage erupts in a ghastly session of physical abuse. That, however, is not the end of the story. The struggle of father and son is portrayed well. Teenagers today may be in conflict with their fathers over different issues than left-handedness, but the pain is the same, for both fathers and sons. Luke is not a rebellious boy; he would like to please his father, but he finally understands that to do so betrays something essential about himself. Winner of the 1999 International Reading Association Award and an ALA Best Book for YAs. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 1998, Penguin/Puffin, 168p, 20cm, 97-39779, $4.99. Ages 13 to 15. Reviewer: ClaireRosser; July 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 4)

    THIS BOOK IS ENTERTAINING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING!

    This book was absolutely wonderful! Granted, it wasn't the baseball book I was expecting, but it has so many good topics that really get you thinking. I was riveted to the book from the minute I started it and couldn't put it down until I finished it. The author does a wonderful job.... There were parts where I couldn't shut my mouth out of sheer surprise. There is also humor sprinkled throughout this book which keeps the reader entertained. There are a few sappy parts, but you can (while feeling embarrassed for the characters) overlook those. This would make an awesome discussion book. This is a great book that challenges the concepts of faith, family, and love. (This is not light reading.) BUY THIS BOOK- YOU WON¿T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
