I was happy to win the giveaway for Stars in the Texas Sky I don t usually read historical fiction but I do sometimes find it interesting This book takes place in the 1950 s with very strong discrimination going on I found it boring at times but it was a cute story overallStars in the Texas Sky is about a thirteen year old boy named Henry who loves his job at the crosswalk delivering papers and most of all playing baseball When a colored boy named Benjamin comes and disrespects Henry they get in a fight over basically nothing One day while Henry is playing baseball Benjamin asks if he can play and Henry realizes that he is a really good player After that they form a new kind of friendship that anyone in town would find wrong in society A shady congressman wanting nothing than to win reelection and not caring who he hurts to get it ends up seriously harming some people As Henry realizes that skin color doesn t matter he also realizes that he needs to stand up for what is rightI think that if I was of a history fan I would have enjoyed this book a lot I really liked how well Henry was developed Though the story was told in third person it often switched which character it focused on It made it easy to relate to each character in the book which made it interesting I believe that any fans of historical fiction like To Kill a Mockingbird would enjoy Stars in the Texas Sky
