"Excellent writing style propels the novel, making it almost
impossible to put down. The novel has an immediate appeal to sports
enthusiasts...but also fits well into various curriculum areas.
Family relationships and challenges are well developed, with strong
female characters, even though the novel is faithful to the reality
of the era and culture. Stealing Home would make an
excellent novel for classroom use and discussion."
