    Okay, so let me preface this with the fact that I don┬┐t care for

    Okay, so let me preface this with the fact that I don’t care for sports and that I normally wouldn’t pick up this novel, accept that one of my students wanted to read it for a project. So, since I don’t have all that many sports books on the approved list for my students to read, I allowed it under the condition that I read it too so I could grade the project accordingly. This all being said, please note that if you enjoy sports like basketball or MG novels, then this is definitely a book for you. As a middle-aged female more interested in paranormal teen romance, well, this book didn’t hit the spot for me, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. Deuker is actually a quite accomplished MG author with multiple novels concerning sports for you MG and YA male, and I will definitely be reading more of his work in order to broaden the genre’s I have on my approved reading lists. Deuker has solid themes and though not all the characters are positive in this novel, he has strong male leads that work through problems, creating a happy ending, which is something more books need, in my opinion. I loved the fact that both nick and Trent had their own set of problems, but were able to overlook them and come together for the greater good and their team, and I liked that they worked to solve their problems. Divorce is a very hard topic to write about, as are troubled households, and Deuker did a phenomenal job creating life-like scenarios and causing the reader to feel for his characters. Though I’m not in love with the story since it’s not my cup of tea, I know good writing when I see it, and I definitely think MG males will love this novel.
