Book Review: The Promise of Jesse Woods by Chris Fabry

Photo Source - Amazon
In the summer of 1972, Matt Plumley's family moves from Pittsburgh to Dogwood, West Virginia when his father joins the church as the new pastor. At a pivotal time in his childhood, Matt befriends two outcasts; Dickie a mixed race boy and Jesse who is raising her younger sister. Matt and his friends forge bonds but when tragedy strikes, it threatens to rip them apart. Will Matt and his friends be able to save their friendship?

The novel was an interesting read and a unique story line. The book was a quick read but I felt the baseball facts was a bit annoying and overwhelming while taking away from the story. A great story about friendship, forgiveness and acceptance and perfect for young readers.
