For Patrick, being twelve years old can be challenging. Add to that the unusual ability to experience dreams as reality and you begin to understand, why Patrick never knows what will happen when he falls asleep. When Patrick's voice begins to change, he declares disaster! But one magnificent dream will introduce Patrick to some real-life heroes, who faced far greater adversity. Patrick discovers that his troubles are minor league in comparison. Will Patrick find the courage to face his fears?
Lisa Ard has done it again as she delivers another delightful, charming, and thrilling adventure in the Dream Seekers Series. This one is filled with baseball knowledge and life lessons for young people to learn as they grow up. Lisa Ard has obviously done impeccable research about the life of Jackie Robinson, the first American-African to play major league baseball. The illustrations are beautifully rendered, it was well-written, exciting, fun, and a fast read and it kept my attention from the very beginning to the very end.
Most adults can get through this in a couple of hours or so and kids in a couple of days. I think it is a wonderful addition to your library, or if you are new to the series, an excellent introduction. There are very few books that absolutely everyone should read. This is one of them.
4 out of 5 stars
An excellent read.
