Review:

"A ten-year-old Chinese girl, Bandit Wong, emigrates to America [in 1947] and assimilates into the Chinese-American Shirley Temple Wong. After earning the friendship of the toughest girl in the class, she is included in the playground stickball games and becomes a loyal fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Poignant but outrageously humorous."--"SLJ."

From the Back Cover:

Shirley Temple Wong sails from China to America with a heart full of dreams.Her new home is Brooklyn, New York. America is indeed a land full of wonders, but Shirley doesn't know any English, so it's hard to make friends. Then a miracle-baseball-happens. It is 1947, and Jackie Robinson, star of the Brooklyn Dodgers, is everyone's hero. Jackie Robinson is proving that a black man, the grandson of a slave, can make a difference in America and for Shirley as well, on the ball field and off, America becomes the land of opportunity.
