“The Boy of Steel: A Baseball Dream Come True” by Ray Negron is an uplifting story of a child with brain cancer who gets to live out his dream of seeing a Yankee game in person and being the team’s batboy for a day. Parents and children alike will enjoy the book, which features vivid illustrations by Laura Seeley and a foreword by Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos. The book touches on some heavy subject matter and it will tug on your heartstrings for sure, but even as main character Michael Steel deals with the severity of his illness, and meets other Yankee players whose lives have been affected by illness, he pushes on. The overall message of the story is to never give up and that is something everyone can relate to.
