Description
"Ten-year-old Bilal liked his life back home in Pakistan. He was a star on his cricket team. But when his father suddenly sends the family to live with their aunt and uncle in America, nothing is familiar. While Bilal tries to keep up with his cousin Jalaal by joining a baseball league and practicing his English, he wonders when his father will join the family in Virginia. Maybe if Bilal can prove himself on the pitcher's mound, his father will make it to see him play. But playing baseball means navigating relation-ships with the guys, and with Jordan, the only girl on the team-the player no one but Bilal wants to be friends with. A sensitive and endearing contemporary novel about family, friends, and assimilation."

display_description Ten-year-old Bilal preferred life in Pakistan where he was the star of his cricket team and his family was all together. Now he's living in America with his aunt and uncle while his father remains in Pakistan. Hoping to fit in and keep up with her American cousin Jalaal, Bilal joins the baseball team where he is determined to stand out as a pitcher--perhaps then his father would come to America to watch him play.
