FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
As stated in my review of Kylie Jean : Drama Queen Kylie Jean is a welcome addition to easy chapter books for girls. Once again the pictures add a cute dimension to the story. Kylie Jean is a likeable character as are her friends and family and especially her dog, Ugly Brother. Recommended for fans of Junie. B., Judy Moody, and this particular title for girls looking for a sports story. These two titles in addition to two more are being published January 2011.
It makes me feel inspired to be a great basketball player in this world
