Reviews

A Junior Library Guild Selection "Deuker creates a textured cast of parents, coaches, and teens and deftly handles themes of personal ethics, teamwork, burgeoning friendships, and coping with an abusive adult." --Booklist "A largely well-executed exploration of team spirit, friendship and the devastating impact of untrustworthy adults." --Kirkus "Basketball fans will love the realistic hardwood action." --The Horn Book Magazine "The novel includes descriptions of many basketball plays and strategies, which should make this book particularly appealing to fans of the game." --Publishers Weekly "This is solid Deuker turf, populated by good kids trapped between conscience and goals. Expect fans to grab this title as soon as it hits the shelf." --Bulletin "Short, action-packed chapters make for a quick read, but the story's underlying messages will linger. . . . What makes this story special is the careful handling of an incredibly difficult topic." --VOYA, 5Q 4P J S "Deuker's ability to create fully realized characters who wrestle with moral dilemmas while incorporating plenty of game action raises his novel above typical sports fiction by several notches. This one will satisfy the author's longtime fans and win him many new ones." --School Library Journal
