About the Author
His novel, GAME FACE, won the Bronze Medal in the 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards for Pre-Teen Fiction. Populated by a cast of wacky screwballs, GAME FACE is a laugh-out-loud basketball story about an unforgettable team of middle-school misfits from northern Minnesota where hockey rules.
A native of Minneapolis, Andy holds a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and is director of the Writing Center and an English professor at Ferris State University (Michigan). For two years he served as a Fulbright Scholar in Norway, lecturing in the graduate school of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
Andy and his wife, Fran, have three grown children and live in northern Michigan with Maggie, their black Labrador.
What People are Saying About This
In Andy Kantar's Game Face, it's impossible not to root for Josh. He's perceptive, funny, self-effacing, and loyal. His voice expresses who he is on every page. There's real depth to Josh, too, a kind of philosophical side.
Game Face is wonderful--an engaging, warm, utterly readable story!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read this to my 9 year old nephew one snowy afternoon just before Christmas, and he really enjoyed the book... and I enjoyed reading it too! Even better, his mother told me the next day he read the entire book on his own. Thanks very much to the author for writing such a fun story!
