Stumptown Kid takes us back to an era of "innocence", "nostalgia", and frank reality. A young boy befriends a black man who proves to be a great baseball coach. And, that is the problem. This universal themes of inequality, redeeming one's past, wanting to fit in, and doing what is right are so appropriate today in our increasingly, "black and white", "me vs. you" society.
So, where do loyalties lie? How does one get help another out of trouble yet stay out of harm's way? How do we deal with bullies?
Gorman readers will enjoy the historical aspects and geographical setting of the book. Excellent for Intermediate and middle school. An easy read for high school, with potential for extended discussion on social issues.
