Half a century later, Kevin Graves is the new kid in that same small town, and he is having a tough time finding just where he fits in as a member of the high school's varsity basketball team. To make matters worse, he begins seeing things on the court that no one else seems to notice. Coach MacDonald tries his best to foster some team spirit among his players. Little do they know that they are about to get a healthy dose of team spirit - but not exactly the kind Coach has in mind.
At times light-hearted, at times tense, Team Spirit is a thought-provoking look at the interactions of the residents of a small town, and what it's like to be an outsider in that town. It is a story about life, and how unfortunate accidents and their repercussions can be resolved - eventually. It sometimes takes just a long, long time.
Written primarily for teens, TEAM SPIRIT is a novel with layers of meaning; the story appeals to adults as well as teens.

This book was a pleasant surprise. The plot was intriguing and I couldn't put the book down near the end. J. Baur Tansey does a great job of weaving some serious themes into a story that really is appropriate for young teens. I am not usually a fan of basketball or ghost stories, but both aspects combined quite well here. Looking forward to reading more by this author.
