Stealing Home: The Story of Jackie Robinson

This book is about Jackie Robinson and his troubles. I can?t compare to Jackie because he had a harder life than two 4 graders put together. I think living in Virginia was hard. I wish there was no prejudice because some people died because of it. The main characters were Jackie and Branch Ricky and the problem was black people were separated from whites in every thing like baseball. Branch Ricky made a change to that.

I recommend this book to people who like history. I dislike one of the parts when they were booing Jackie because he was a good man.
