Beverly Jenkins

Bev Jenkins grew up with four older brothers, who are pretty rowdy. Her mother would love it if Bev could be a bit more "feminine and lady-like" (her mother's words), but Bev can’t help how much she loves playing with the guys and knows that sports are feminine and lady-like. In 1955, she enjoys being captain of the girls softball team. Beverly’s Louisville Slugger bat, her talisman, represents her passion for baseball and sports and her search for more athletic opportunities at a time when women’s roles were fairly limited to indoor activities. In the future, unexpected athletic opportunities put her into daily contact with her secret crush, Conrad Marshall, Maxine’s African-American cousin. Will Bev get to play on the boys team? What will happen with her secret crush on Conrad? Find out in Travel to Tomorrow, the first Fifties Chix book.
