In this touching memoir, Sharon Robinson, the daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, invites listeners to join her younger self in the year 1963, a signature year in the Civil Rights Movement. As Robinson recalls her thirteenth year, listeners will detect a myriad of emotions throughout the audiobook. Most memories are delivered in tones of fondness and warmth, while others--like accounts of the rifts Robinson sometimes notices within her family--are voiced in saddened, weary tones. Robinson's openness and transparency during her narration allow listeners to do more than learn about the historical events of 1963--her delivery style allows them to feel the emotions that she herself felt. Listeners of all ages are sure to be inspired by this true story of resilience. V.T. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
