Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Eric Walters, basketball coach turned writer, has given basketball enthusiasts in the third through fifth grade a chapter book they will enjoy. And this goes for boys and girls alike, which continues a refreshing trend in fiction for kids. Nick is ten years old and his best friend, Kia, is also 10. They have the love of the game in common as well as the fact that they are the best players in the third grade. When a school competition is announced, they have to choose a third person to team up with for the First Annual Clark Boulevard Three-on-Three Basketball Tournament. Marcus, the fifth grader they choose, lives with his father in a lower income neighborhood. While he is a great basketball player, he struggles with writing the essay that each kid needs to submit to qualify for the competition. These differences, ones that the kids seem to take in their stride, come to the forefront when Nick's mom suspects that Marcus may have stolen money from her purse. Though not developed in depth, the novel has a worthwhile message about jumping to conclusions. However mostly, it is just a fun book about playing hard and loving the game of basketball. 1999, Orca Book Publishers, Ages 8 to 11, $4.50. Reviewer: Kathleen Orosz

    Exceptionally Written!

    We started this book and could not stop! My son and I felt as if we were part of the game. Now we look forward to reading Hoop Crazy, Full Court Press and Long Shot to see what adventure's Kia and Nick experience.
