    1. I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Since there were a ton of missing lines and passages, as well as many grammatical errors, my review is much lower The missing lines especially impact my review, because I literally had no idea what was going on with some scenes, and having to infer and guess what was being said left me honestly really confused Who is saying what What is going on Is she coming with him Is he leaving her That aside, with the remaining passages I had [...]

    2. A chapter of history beautifully renditioned through the eyes of this young Japanese Canadian girl Mic hiko War never works towards embracing different culture, especially the perceived enemy s How do you hold your head up proudly when the nation of your ancestors is at war with your new home country Especially when your new country treats you so badly This is the overriding arch of the three book series beginning with When the Cherry Blossoms Fell, continuing with Cherry Blossom Winter and endi [...]

    3. Cherry Blossom Baseball is an engaging book about a Japanese girl named Michiko, who is forced, along with her family, from her town in Canada to Ontario during World War II Isolated and scapegoated by her own country s racist policies Michiko is bullied by the kids in school where she is the only Japanese child Luckily, Michiko has a heart as big as a Mack truck and loves baseball She is spunky, courageous, and with her strong pitching arm and great intelligence Michiko finds a way to play on a [...]

    4. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to NetGalley and publisher.Set in the final years of the Second World War, Cherry Blossom Baseball centers around a twelve years old Japanese girl called Michiko From what I understand, Maruno has already written a couple of books about Michiko and her family, but they re not part of a series per se This book works well as a stand alone, although we barely get to meet her family and friends before they move to Ontario, and [...]

    5. I read an ARC which I freely received from NetGalley Sentences or parts of sentences were missing throughout the book which made it a frustrating read I believe the story line could be good, but missing so many parts throughout the entire book, make it unpleasant.The story itself is good Michiko is a young Japanese girl living in Canada during World War II She deals with prejudices against her including name calling and cruelty She deals with it, however, and continues to bring A s home on her r [...]

    6. I m very interested in all things gender bender , so after reading the description, I knew I had to read Cherry Blossom Baseball.The Michiko as a boy part wasn t really a big part of this story it started in the second half , but Michiko was a very interesting character and I didn t miss it that much She is a young girl, not only growing up during the second world war, but also hated by most of society, because she is japanese and therfore the enemy Michiko s struggles were reasonable, how she w [...]

    7. Michiko and her family are moving out of a ghost town during WWII into a rented house in Ontario There she faces racism and bullying for Asian Her family s attitude of staying positive, doing the right thing and working hard are at odds with Michiko s desire to fit in The story s characters are very strong, Michiko s voice and concerns would be easily understood by modern kids The plot around baseball is very believable and engaging The outmoded attitudes about women playing on a boy s team are [...]

    8. Interesting story told from the point of view of a Japanese Canadian girl during the time when Japanese Canadians were considered enemies and forced to live in camps Reading level and content is appropriate for junior intermediate students Historical fiction, though based in some part on the author s mother in law experiences Part 3 of a series I would read the other books.Canadian author, who is a retired educator Purchased from the Reading for the Love of It conference in 2016 and signed by th [...]

    9. I loved it Is it a wonderful read for all ages There are times in our lives when we all wished we could be someone else to be yourself even when you are great at something sometimes people will say don t do because you are a girl or boy but it is ok to stand up for what you believe in This book encourages all people no matter what do what you are meant to do and do not let anyone tell you that you can t READ READ READ

    10. From my review The story itself really captures the tug of changing for instance, the cultural shift demonstrated by the changing tide of the old ways brought over from Japan merging with the new ways of Michiko s Canadian home, as well as the social change brought about by World War Two freedom for women or girls to do the things formerly thought of as men s sole domain, like playing baseball.

    11. This is the first series of books I ever read I liked this one, but there was a typo or two and sometimes I had a hard time following the speed of her writing.
