Diamond War, Castle Court Kids

It’s the girls against the boys when the fight for a baseball diamond erupts into an all-out war
Fifth graders Eddy Wong, Carlos Garcia, and Bucky “Buckaroo” Brockhurst all live in the Castle Court apartment complex. They’re part of a special club called the PROs. They plan to build a baseball diamond on the site of the deserted Dragoman property and are already picking out balls, mitts, and bats.
Kate Nicely and Aurora and Athena Pappas also live at Castle Court. They believe the vacant lot is a magical grove and a perfect haven for unicorns. No way are they letting those insensitive boys cut down their precious trees. The girls hold a council meeting in the Pappas gazebo to plot their next move. Families take sides. And the full-scale battle to claim the land begins.
