Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
For days when the sun warms the outdoor court, young hoop-shooters may like cooling down with Fred Bowen's Off the Rim. Chris gets playing tips from Greta, the high-scoring star of the middle-school girls' basketball team-and from her mother, who was a star when girls played a different brand of the game. As with all Bowen's baseball and basketball titles, this one is marked by fast action and believable, contemporary characters. The short section in the back on the history of women's basketball makes for especially interesting reading in March, which is Women's History Month.
