Step Up to the Plate, Maria Singh

By Newbery Honor Winner Kathi Appelt, author of THE UNDERNEATH

A testament to the power of family, identity, faith and one girl’s strong drive for fairness. At the same time, it also shows us how difficult it is to evoke change, especially in the face of the twin forces of racism and sexism. . . . Readers will see in Maria a hero, not only for her own time, but for all time.
