This story takes place in North Carolina. He starts off living on his own trying to not get picked up by Child Protective Services but blows his cover. So he gets taken to a nicer part of town with a foster family. Now trying to make the basketball playoffs comes a challenge with his new team.
My first reason is that he is a great teammate. One way to show this is, “He could have kept it for an easy bucket but passed instead,’’pg 88. This shows he is a great teammate because he could have kept it but decided to pass. Another piece of evidence is, “ With fists flying through the air Jayson tries an attempt at stopping it,” This shows he is a good teammate because he tried to stop a fight to save his friends. And that is two reasons why he is a good teammate.
My second reason is that he is an aggressive player. Like on pg 213 it says, “Jayson was trying to keep his voice low even though he was spitting mad,”pg 63. This shows he is an aggressive player because he wants to just yell. Also in the story it says, “He was playing mad like always,” This shows that he is an aggressive player because he was playing like he has something to prove. And those are my two reasons that he is an aggressive player.
And my last reason that it is a fascinating book is that Jayson has to persevere through tough times. In the book it says “With his mom gone, Jayson knew it wouldn't be long before Richie left him too,”pg 11. This shows that he had to persevere even without anyone to take care of him. My second piece of evidence is “ Why didn't you tell me they were black?,” (his foster parents). This shows that he had to persevere because he got nervous around black people. There are some examples to show how he had to persevere.
All in all, we can learn that if you just keep going at it you will eventually get it. I would read Fast Break over and over because it is so unpredictable! I rate this 5 out of 5 stars.
