Snowman On The Pitcher's MoundBy Jamie Reno
129 Pages
ISBN: 978-1555917418

A new, realistic and poignant middle school-aged novel that tells the story of how a 10-year-old boy copes when his mother is diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In the book, the boy, who loves baseball and his family, talks about his life, his friends, his school and all the anger, fear, sadness and confusion prompted by his mom's unexpected illness. This touching story offers the boy's emotional changes in the child's own voice and in an accessible way. The author wanted to help young readers as well as their parents understand and appreciate a child's natural course of anger, frustration, sadness and fear. The book is for both children and grown-ups, but particularly reaches out to boys.
