The book "Last Shot" is about a boy and girl that win a writing contest and get to write articles for the final four. The boys name is Steve Thomas and the girls name is Susan Carol. When Steve and Susan get to the final four they meet each other and they get to know each other. One day they get lost and they try to find their way back to the lobby and then they run into one of the basketball teams and heard the player and coach talking about setting up the game. So Steve and Susan try to figure out what exactly happened and they try to stop it.

I like this book cause it talks about basketball and I like basketball. It kept me reading and there were some funny parts to the book. The book had some surprising parts to it so it kept you focused and kept you attached to the book. I don't like how it takes a little while to get into the action of the book but that is the only thing I dislike of the book.

I would recommend this book to people who like sports. Especially people who like basketball cause it is really intense. For people who like cliff hangers and leave them suspecting something.

    Last Shot

    In this thrilling, sports related story John Feinstein uses many cliffhangers to write about Stevie Thomas who travels to New Orleans as a result of winning the USBWA writing competition. Then, when he gets there him and the other competition winner, Susan Carol, finally meet each other for the first time.. Wearing press passes around their necks Steve couldn't be happier. Until he and Susan Carol are nosing around in the Superdome and overhear Minnesota State's star player, Chip Graber, being told he has to throw the championship game. It is up to Stevie and Susan Carol to find out the mystery of the Final Four and to stop the blackmailers.

    This book is a great choice for children that are ages 9-13. This amazing story gives you a behind the scenes look at the way reporters work as well as a page turning story about the Final Four and all the work that goes into making a quality story, that makes the newspapers, possible. This book puts a brand new perspective on the way you look at collage basketball and all the coaches and staff that are on the team.

    Great Book

    I thought this book was an awesome book. I liked this book because it was about basketball, which is one of the sports I play. So I knew what was going on in the book.<BR/> Stevie Thomas is a kid who loves basketball. His friend, Susan Carol, and he are both interested in sports writing. In this book it¿s March Madness, which is like the playoffs for college basketball. After Stevie enters in a contest for sports writing, he wins and Susan and he get to go to New Orleans for the Final Four in March Madness. While they¿re wandering around, they hear the coach talking to Minnesota State¿s star point guard about throwing the game.<BR/> I recommend this book to people who like basketball, because you will know a lot more about what is going on with March Madness and the Final Four, if you don¿t know about it. You will have to read the book to find out if Minnesota will throw the game or not.

    Last Shot

    Steve Thomas loves sports. When he wins a writing contest everything seems awesome. But when he and his fellow contest winner named Susan Carol overhear the MSU basketball star Chip Graber talking to a coach about blackmail everything I thought that the book started out pretty slow but. When you get to around page 75 it starts to get really good. I thought that this was very good twist in mystery and sports. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sports and the mystery is a big bonus. changes in their so called ¿basketball paradise.¿
