Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-8

These sport-themed novels provide a lot of bang for your buck and are perfect for reluctant readers. In Rivals , Amy suffers an injury that prevents her from competing on her school track team for two months of the season, and she worries that she won't be prepared for a big meet. Priebe successfully conveys the African-American child's love for running, and the dialogue is easygoing and realistic. The fast-paced story has enough suspense to keep readers' interest. The only minus may be the illustrations, which appear rather one-dimensional and amateurish. In Climb , 14-year-old Amir is befriended by a police officer who helps the boy channel his dangerous attempts at scaling buildings into the safe, fun hobby of climbing in a gym. The book skillfully combines an action-based plot with facts about the sport. The story is well executed (if a little predictable), but it is not enhanced by the illustrations. Back matter in both books is excellent-a brief biography of Babe Didrikson Zaharias in Rivals and facts about climbing in the other book; questions to prompt discussion and writing; and directions for using the publisher's FactHound Web site to further explore these activities.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI
