From Our Editors

Fed up with being poor and listening to his mom’s complaint sessions, Spencer decides to head for the hills -- of San Francisco, that is. Spencer’s father works with the Giants baseball team, and he believes that if he can get to the west coast, his dad will surely embrace him with open arms. A young boy embarks on a bold, exciting and somewhat dangerous journey in Peg Kehret’s Searching for Candlestick Park.
