First Line Friday

Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is The All-American by Susie Finkbeiner


This was planned to be my next physical read, but I’ve heard a TON of positive reviews on the audio for this one and since I like to listen on my drive to work (and on my other summer travels), I’ve decided it’s going to be my next audio listen. I can’t wait!

Two sisters discover how much good there is in the world--even in the hardest of circumstances

It is 1952, and nearly all the girls 16-year-old Bertha Harding knows dream of getting married, keeping house, and raising children in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. Bertha dreams of baseball. She reads every story in the sports section, she plays ball with the neighborhood boys--she even writes letters to the pitcher for the Workington Sweet Peas, part of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

When Bertha's father is accused of being part of the Communist Party by the House Un-American Activities Committee, life comes crashing down on them. Disgraced and shunned, the Hardings move to a small town to start over where the only one who knows them is shy Uncle Matthew. But dreams are hard to kill, and when Bertha gets a chance to try out for the Workington Sweet Peas, she packs her bags for an adventure she'll never forget.

Join award-winning author Susie Finkbeiner for a summer of chasing down your dreams and discovering the place you truly belong.

    I’m currently reading Moving Forward by Shelley Shepard Gray. So far, it’s a sweet read.
