This book is about a young basketball player named Danny Walker. He tries hard to get on the basketball team. Danny usually makes the team, until this year, When he didn't make the team, he felt confused. He later found out that he didn't make the team because he was too small. Danny's dad decides to make a team for him. Danny's dad used to play basketball until he got in a car crash. They then won a couple of games and eventually made playoffs. Danny's dad then gets in another car crash. After that, the best player, who breaks his wrist later on, joins the Middletown Vikings.
I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially if you love basketball. The book is very suspenseful. Every chapter has its own problem to be solved. The characters are very relate able, which makes the book even better. Once you pick the book up, you can't put it down.
The theme of this book, is not to give up. Even though Danny was cut from his team, he still kept going. And believed in himself and kept his head up high and didn’t doubt himself. Even through the darkest times, Danny still has hope for his team. I think if you play basketball or any sport in general and you are having trouble of making the team this book will show you to not have doubt, to be confident and keep trying. Hopefully this will show you a little bit about the book . You can learn from Danny’s experiences from his problems. !
In Chapter 2, Page 16 has “GD”...and I know “hell” is in there pretty early also.
Had I read the reviews prior to purchasing, I would have NEVER let my basketball loving child read this.
There should be a WARNING about the language, especially while being marketed to 10 year old and up.
Thankfully, my daughter knew to tell me...she is my basketball lover.
I will NOT buy anything else written by this pathetic author.
