While helping his family make ends meet during the Depression by selling newspapers, a boy meets Babe Ruth.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
It's 1932 and we're in what everybody's calling "the Great Depression." I thought my family was lucky because my dad still had his job. But last week I found out that when Dad leaves with his large briefcase each morning, he's not going to the office at all.

Publisher Description:
It's 1932 and everyone is struggling through the Great Depression. When the resourceful young narrator of this story discovers that his father is jobless, he decides to become a newsie. He and his friend Jacob figure out how to sell more papers than the other kids. Many more. Because they've got Babe Ruth to help them. Business is soon booming and, thanks to the Babe, they even get a chance to see a Yankees game.
