A Long Pitch Home
Bilal has a great life in Pakistan - friends, a great cricket team, and a wonderful family. Then his father disappears for 3 days and soon after the rest of his family is sent to America. His dad tells them he will come soon but there are delays and problems.
Meanwhile in America Bilal is trying to adjust - ESL classes, new friends, and baseball which is kind of like cricket - but isn't. Can Bilal learn to love his new country and all it has to offer and will his father every get to come too?
This was a good story - solid. Good information about this Muslim family without overdoing it. Also good to see what life is like for a newcomer.
