Samurai Shortstop
Samurai Shortstop by Alan Gratz is a Coming of Age Story focusing on young Toyo Shimada, a first-year at Ichiko High School in the year 1890, around the start of the Meiji period in Japan. Young Toyo must face bullying seniors, his father's refusal to modernize, and his own inability to cope with his uncle's seppuku, all while finding a way to incorporate his father's bushido (way of the samurai) into his baseball practices and help his school's baseball team rise to the top.
