Synopsis

Seventeenyearold Ruby Thomas, newly responsible for her two young nieces after a devastating tragedy, is determined to keep her family safe in the vast, swirling world of 1920s New York City. Shes got street smarts, boundless determination, and one unusual skill: the ability to throw a ball as hard as the greatest pitchers in a baseballmad city.

From Coney Island sideshows to the brandnew Yankee Stadium, Diamond Ruby chronicles the extraordinary life and times of a girl who rises from utter poverty to the kind of renown only the Roaring Twenties can bestow. But her fame comes with a price, and Ruby must escape a deadly web of conspiracy and threats from Prohibition rumrunners, the Ku Klux Klan, and the gangster underworld. Diamond Ruby is the exciting tale of a forgotten piece of baseballs heritage, a girl who could throw with the best of them. A real pageturner, based closely on a true story (Kevin Baker, author of Strivers Row).
