Stealing Home A Story of Jackie Robinson is about an African American boy who was never treated with any respect not even when he was playing sports [ he was really good at sports] because he was a different color than white. When Jackie starts to play baseball in the black leagues a guy named Branch Rickey wanted some good p;ayers for the Dodgers team and he didn't care what color they were. He got Jackie Robinson as a good ball player so he told some of his players to go and watch. When they tell Mr. Rickey he calls up Jackie and has a meeting with him. When Jackie says he will join, well a black playing in the white major leagues is pretty amazing. Jackie could change life history forever.
Reading this book made me feel sad sometimes because I know that if I were black at that time I wouldn't want to be treated that way if you were white back then think about how you would like it if you were being treated how they were. I was happy when jackie was playing sports because he was good at them it made me like he was the superhero because he did what he was good at. Also when he excepted to play for the Dodgers because he was going to help move the country forward to how it is today. I would give this book 10 out of 10 stars because it was really fun to learn about past history and how just one brave colored person could be so intelligent at that time to know that just because you're black doesn't mean you can't do anything whites can't
