Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Ferren
Written in contemporary style, this fast paced sports action paperback moves the reader through a season with the Rangers-a basketball team reported to be the best in the league. Daren blames everyone but himself when the Rangers go through a slump, including a teammate, his best friend, and a young neighbor. Daren finally realizes he is part of the problem and learns to be a real team player. The dialogue is realistic. The action will be sure to please any young sports fan. Christopher scores another win.

Daren McCall is a middle school basketball player for the Rangers who loses his temper on the basketball court. Daren's temper causes technical fouls which upsets his team. Daren and his teammate, Lou Bettman, argue and fight. As the season goes on the whole team starts to break apart. Read this book to find out what happens.I found this book fun to read. Great book for 5th and 6th graders.

I think that they have ups and downs and if they do that one more time the team is going to braek up and it will be a mess.
