Gold Dust

'“Lynch’s provocative novel tells a piece of [Boston’s] history and the more intimate story of a transforming friendship.” —The Horn Book (starred review) “This sports story transcends the genre, becoming a novel not just about baseball, but also about life.” —Boston Herald “A subtle, challenging study of star–crossed friendship.” —Kirkus Reviews “Baseball fans will not be disappointed, and the novel’s denouement is as honest as it is heartbreaking.” —Publishers Weekly “This novel contains some of the best sports writing readers will ever find in a YA novel.” —School Library Journal “Lynch captures the thrill of the game and an athlete’s intense physical and mental concentration with freshness and joy, and issues of race and class are introduced with sensitivity and realism. This is a wonderful baseball book, but it’s the awkward, intense friendship that drives the story.” —Booklist “[Richard and Napoleon’s] tenuous friendship is one readers are bound to respect and remember.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books  '
