Good news. My middle grade novel, Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War, just won a Gold Award for Historical Fiction from the Literary Classics International Book Awards Committee, an independent book award and review organization. Dear Frank was also cited for its appeal to pre-teen male readers. Here is the review the committee wrote praising Dear Frank...
Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War is a work of fiction chronicled through a series of letters penned by a young boy to his big brother, Frank, during World War I. This book relays the many hopes and dreams of Bostonians as seen through the eyes of a young boy. The politics of war and baseball play a key role in this story, as does the touching sentiment of a brother and family who all greatly miss the presence of Frank in their lives. Gems of historical fact are interspersed throughout the book, making this a fascinating and enjoyable read.
W. Nikola-Lisa exhibits rare talent in this genuinely touching book about the bond between brothers, the hardships of war. . . and the joy of baseball.
Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War is a Seal of Approval Recipient and earned two Gold Awards in the 2013 Literary Classics International Book Awards.
