The Moves Make The Man was a book mostly about basketball. The main characters in the book were Jerome, Bix, and Jerome¿s mom. In the book Jerome watches a baseball game and he likes to watch the shortstop on the Seven Ups team. After the game there were two trucks that gave out food to the people that were watching the game, the players, and to the people that would just come from the neighborhood. Jerome hates baseball and he had to watch the game for his brother Maurice coaches the Poke Peters. Jerome loves to play basketball and he has his own basketball court in the middle of the woods. No one else knows where the court is. Every day Jerome would go out to play basketball and would work on moves to make him a better player then before. Jerome was hoping to go to school, so he could play for the varsity team, because he had talked to the coach about playing for his team and he showed the coach some of his moves. Jerome thinks that moves make the man and he is talking about doing tricks in basketball. When Jerome goes to the new school they won¿t let him play on the basketball team and the team is all white people. When the school year starts Jerome is put into a new school with all whites. When he goes to the school he said that the school was kind of cool to go to because he got to do a language for a class. Jerome does not like his communications teacher for he would only think of you by your body language. When Jerome¿s mom gets hurt, he is put into a home economics class, so he could cook food for his brothers. When Jerome¿s mom had came home, Jerome and his brothers still were doing all the chores around the house for she was not well. She had asked them if they were still doing the things they loved to do when she was gone. When they said ¿no¿ she had said that you guys have to at least do a hour of the thing you like to. Then Jerome had to go find a different court to play at where no one would bother him since he could not go to the court in the middle of the woods. When he found the court, it was at an old burned down school where a train would run by every so often. I say that this book is an average book to read. This book is for people that like to play sports. This book is also for people that like to play a sport, but are not good at that sport, but have the heart to become better in the sport.

Moves Make the Man

The Moves Makes The Man was an acceptable book if you like sports books. The thing I don¿t like about this book is that it takes place like around the 1940¿s. But if you do like this kind of books than this is your book. This is about a kid name Jerome who loves to play...
The Moves Makes The Man was an acceptable book if you like sports books. The thing I don¿t like about this book is that it takes place like around the 1940¿s. But if you do like this kind of books than this is your book. This is about a kid name Jerome who loves to play basketball and he wanted to play for his school, but since he lived so far away he had to go to a different school. In that school there wasn¿t anything but white people, no one liked him because he was black. So when he tried out for the basketball team the coach didn¿t let him because he was black. So one day his mom got hurt and she was at the hospital for a long time. So Jerome and his brothers had to take care of the house. Since Jerome had to the cooking he took cooking lessons at his school. He thought he was the only boy in his class but no there was another boy in that class and his name is Braxton Rivers or Bix. Bix was going to play basketball. So Jerome was seeing him play basketball, Bix was playing horrible. Jerome started to teach him. Jerome told him he needs to do a fake on people. Bix said no because a fake is like a lie and he didn¿t like to lie. So Jerome didn¿t bother on telling him again because he didn¿t want him to freak out again. The next day after practicing basketball they started to talk and Bix told him he has never seen his mother in years. The only person who sees her is his stepfather. When he comes home he doesn¿t even tell him how she is doing, because she is in a hospital. One day when Bix told his stepfather that he wanted to see his mom he said no. So Bix challenged him on a game one on one. If Bix won he could see his mother, if he didn¿t than he wouldn¿t bother him again and he agreed. But what do you think did Bix see his mom or did he lose and not ask about her again?
