Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Fueled by plenty of high-octane sports action, Feinstein’s latest fast-break tale of intrigue and corruption in the world of athletics focuses on the hubbub surrounding a nationally ranked high-school basketball player. Terrell Jamerson has a clear path to the NBA, but there’s an awful lot to navigate through: dazzling offers from colleges, enticing glimpses of the high life offered by unscrupulous scouts and agents, pressures exerted by sleazy “friends,” and eagle-eyed NCAA officials with agendas of their own. Fortunately, not only is Terrell level-headed but he has loyal friends in teammate Danny, a point guard who is also getting noticed by college recruiters, and Danny’s stubbornly honest father, who coaches their team through a series of hard-fought games. A character from previous books, investigative journalist Bobby Kelleher, gets a significant supporting role, and Feinstein brings in actual players, coaches, reporters, and scouts for verisimilitude-building cameos. He also delivers blistering indictments of the NCAA: for leaning heavily on secondary young prospects while turning a blind eye to infractions by major ones and to the recruitment system for blatantly exploiting young athletes. Readers will understand how hard Terrell’s choices are—particularly after two accidents make taking the quick money look like the safer option. They will cheer him, too, as a team leader who ultimately makes decisions for the right reasons. Grades 7-10. --John Peters

"Readers will understand how hard Terrell’s choices are—particularly after two accidents make taking the quick money look like the safer option. They will cheer him, too, as a team team leader who ultimately makes makes decisions for the right reasons."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, October 15, 2013:
"Thorough and suspenseful; a must-read for those interested in basketball and the dealings surrounding the sport.”

School Library Journal, November 2013:
A riveting, cautionary tale about behind-the-scenes, big-money pressures confronting talented high school athletes. . . Timely hot topics are embedded in this action-packed sports story. Readers will breathlessly await Terrell’s final decision.”

My 12 yr old son is reading "Foul Trouble" way past his bedtime. I say that is criteria for 5 stars!

First off, I haven't read this book. I heard Feinstein's interview on the Jim Rome show, I thought it sounded interesting, so I bought it for my son, who is a 16 year old high school basketball player. My son is a good student, but typical for today's teenagers, with a lot of interest in his phone and video games. So I thought I'd give him something else to do over Christmas break.

When he got done with the book, I asked him what he thought, so here is his report. "Great book, maybe the best I've ever read. I'm gonna read it again sometime."

My 12-year old son read this book and demanded that I read it too. I thought it was well written (John Feinstein is a great writer - read "Caddy for life") and dealt honestly with the challenges a young star player would face. My son absolutely loved it and I thought it had some positive messages for him packaged in a compelling manner. I highly recommend it for sports-crazed kids.

My 13 year old son read this in two days. He said he loved it and couldn't put it down. When he finished, he went straight to our local library and checked out all of the other books by this author.

The book shows the rare events of teenage superstars and how the attention they get might not be what one would think.
