Publisher Description:
In a small upstate New York town during the Great Depression, three children--Hibernia, Willie, and Otis--are about to meet.
Hibernia dreams of becoming a famous singer and performing at Harlem's swanky Savoy Ballroom.Willie is recovering from a tragedy that prevents him from becoming a junior boxing champ.Otis spends every night glued to the radio, listening to the voices that remind him of Daddy and Ma.
Each of them is looking for hope, and they all find it in the thrilling boxing matches of young Joe Louis. They "know" Joe has a good chance of becoming the country's next heavyweight champion. What they "don't" know is that during this unforgettable year, the three of them will become friends.
