Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
STAT means “standing tall and talented,” it and is the nickname for Amar’e, whose character is based on the NBA All-Star basketball player, Amar’e Stoudemire. STAT, who is in his early teens, is excited when Overtime Tanner asks him to play in the Classic, a basketball fundraiser. STAT and his friend Jammer go to an old-timers’ game that Overtime is playing in. During the game, Overtime gets hurt and has to go to the hospital. When STAT finds out that Overtime will not be able to organize the Classic because of his injury, STAT volunteers put the fundraiser together. There are many play-by-play descriptions of their basketball games as STAT recruits players for the teams. He has to make some decisions about playing with his friends, but he figures it out; with help, he is able to get the tournament ready on time. There is a detailed description of the big game and a pleasant ending as Overtime is able to hand out the trophies. This chapter book will appeal to readers who like sports, especially basketball. STAT tells the story in a casual and easy to read style. This upbeat book would be a good addition to school and public library collections. Reviewer: Vicki Foote; Ages 9 to 12.
