Acerca de


As seventh grade ends, Oren is haunted by the murder of his best friend, Fred, in the evil house that once stood next door. Now it's an empty lot filling up with trash. Oren has a brilliant idea -- to turn the lot into the Fred Lightfoot Memorial Ball Field. Soon the Bell family and their friends are flying high into summer. The Fred Field hosts ball games and band practice. Oren's little sister, Brenda, leads the way in working on a neighborhood art project. Latonya, his overachieving twin, plans Mama and Jack's wedding. But Oren won't be distracted from his most important goal -- to find out who killed Fred, and bring the murderer to justice.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In an event-packed continuation of the saga of Oren Bell (1991) and his colorful inner-city Detroit family, the young African-American and his twin, Latonya, spend the summer after seventh grade fostering a ballpark (``Fred Field'') in memory of a gifted homeless friend who was murdered in the crack house that formerly occupied the site; discovering Fred's murderer and, by convincing him that Fred's ghost is haunting him, forcing him to confess; and organizing Mama's July 4 wedding--not to mention playing in a band and participating in an arts project. The exuberant productivity of these kids is almost a tall tale, but a joyously inspirational one: Latonya plans to be a doctor and manages the household with efficiency and panache while Mama goes to college and holds a job; little Brenda, though subject to depression, is creative and resilient; and, if Oren doesn't shine like his sisters, he's still thoughtful and reliable enough to make a perfect best man for his nice new dad. Burgess's witty narrative is a delight, with vivid, briskly developed scenes, a wealth of vibrant characters, and staccato dialogue that unobtrusively incorporates their firm grasp of what's feasible and what's right. Though upbeat, the story isn't simplistic; in the end, the city razes the Bell's beloved home and the ballfield, but at least the new housing to be built there will be named for Fred. Splendidly warmhearted and engrossing. (Fiction. 10-14) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

We strive to maintain the highest feedback store by going above and beyond for each and every customer, regardless of the cost of their order. We look forward to serving you. There is a particular item that you are in search of that is not listed under our inventory currently, feel free to make a request. We have over 1,000's books and other items in our warehouse and counting, and as we try to be as detailed as possible in our listings, getting them all online is a slow process.
