This book sends a clear message. Boys dont deserve respect, privacy or modesty and girls can treat boys in a manner that would be totally reprehensible if reversed. Its no wonder boys are struggling so much in schools today with such a broad spectrum of disrespect, double standards and legalised discrimination. So much for equality.
Are girls ever going to be responsible for what they do, or is it only boys and men who have to respect the opposite sex.
Wonderful message, Ms Moore. Is this some kind of double standard fantasy your acting out on? What a great example to set. As if girls needed any encouragement to degrade boys to begin with.
This book was really outdated. These days a school would never be able to get away with the sort of attitude toward girls that this book takes. When one basketball team has to be cut and the teams are combined, it is never referred to as a co-ed team; it is still the boys' team. Girls are just permitted to try out. Pep talks and such take place in the boys' locker room. The boys are afraid of guarding the girls. The one major incident--someone drawing mustaches on the girls' pictures--is never really dealt with.
All in all, it was a pretty flimsy look at an improbable situation.
Only read it if you really like basketball and think guys are jerks. Don't read it if you like an interesting story, characters and comedy.

Do you like to play basketball?
If you do then this is the book for you.
This book is about three girls that are best friends. They are very different, but they all love to play basketball. When Middle School eliminates the girls' basketball team they accept to join the boys' team. But playing on the boys' team is much harder than the girls expected. These boys won't let them play. They give the girls a hard time to be accepted. Finally the big game arrives... Will the girls reach their expectations?
I give this book *** stars because I do not consider it a great book. It was fun to read but I didn't get into it that much. I recommend it to people who like to play basketball and who don't like boys! It is more recommended for girls because the main characters are girls. If you are not into sports, I don't you will be interested in this story. Boys will probably not like this kind of book!
