Overview

After only ever playing pick-up games, Ana Ramirez is excited to attend a basketball summer camp where she'll play on a real team with real teammates.

Combining a dramatic sports story with a dynamic full-color comic format, this Jake Maddox Graphic Novel is sure to be a win for any young reader.

About the Author

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

Bere Muniz is a mexican artist from Monterrey. She has been drawing and coloring comics since 2009. Her work can be found on several children books in her country, where she lives with her beloved partner in crime, a shaggy dog and four cats.
