Two seventh-graders begin a tenuous friendship in 1975 Boston, when the Gold Dust Twins play for the Red Sox and school busing has begun. "Several provocative situations go unexplored, such as the tension that results from Napoleon being black and more affluent than Richard's white working-class family. But baseball fans will not be disappointed, and the novel's denouement is as honest as it is heartbreaking," wrote PW. Ages 10-up. (Apr.)
