Once upon a time, children were allowed to play outside and explore the world. Family dinners were the rule, not the exception. Rock and roll was new, exciting, and a little dangerous. This may sound like the setting of an old movie, but for author Anthony N. Botta it formed the background of his life as he grew up in a large Italian family in a New York City borough. In Stumps in the Outfield, he narrates his life story, beginning with his birth in 1952. He shares how, as a young boy he didn't understand the war or the social revolutions about to take place. All he knew was his love of baseball, music, and his family. Botta tells a story filled with first crushes, dreams, and bitter disappointments. From his memories of the nuns of his school to his early marriage and subsequent divorce, Botta offers a rich account of a time many wish they knew. Witty and sometimes heartbreaking, this memoir captures and celebrates the joy, drama, and trauma of a generation of change.

It's September 1943, and eleven-year-old Ellie McKelvey's older brother, Jimmy, has just been drafted. Jimmy has a joyful heart and a kind word for everyone, and he's the only person who thinks Ellie is smart and funny and as beautiful as Lana Turner, the movie star. Ellie can hardly stand to see him go. With Jimmy gone, Aunt Toots moves into his bedroom, Ellie's mother takes a war job at a factory, and everything in Ellie's life seems upside down. But she figures that the war will be over and Jimmy home by Christmas, so as much as she misses him, she keeps her spirits up. Even as families in the neighborhood begin to receive telegrams informing them that their boys are wounded or worse, Ellie never stops believing in Jimmy. In her second work of historical fiction, Mary Ann Rodman captures all the authentic details of life on the homefront during World War II, as well as the fierce love a sister has for her beloved big brother.
