    I would recommend this to readers who enjoy cogrageous protagonists I also enjoyed the parts when the protagonist didn t give up on himself I also liked the attitude of the head coach of his high school I also enjoyed the parts in the beginning of the book when his friends tried to convince him to join the wrestling team.

    The basketball subplot is used mainly to highlight the main character s struggle with breaking unofficial racial barriers once he finally makes the high school s varsity basketball team The main character, Raymond Wisniewski, who is Polish has to balance his old friendships with other Polish boys with his new friendships with the African American teammates.This is a book that would appeal mainly to male teenagers who really love the game of basketball or sports in general I thought it was pretty [...]

    I thought the book was very enthusiastic and there was never a part where it was boring It also showed me a couple of things like one was that it does not matter what race or what anything you are that everyone one should have an equal opportunity to do what they want and not get criticized Raymond Wisniewski knows that the polish kids don t ever really go out for basketball they just wrestle and the BLACK kids play basketball He was rejected and never get put on the Franklin High School basketb [...]

    A coming of age tale centred around a U.S high school student called Ray who wants to do nothing than play basketball for his school team but is frustrated in his efforts to make the cut at successive annual try outs I was worried at the outset that my lack of interest in basketball would turn into a lack of interest in the story but this was not the case as this soon proved to be about than a tale about jocks The theme of racism soon enters into the frame and forms the undercurrent of the sto [...]

    This showed me that racial lines were heavy no matter how good you was in a sport , the love of the game can teach you a lot I could recommend this book to a wrestler to convince them to play ball For young readers to leash out a favoritism in towards having your way with books can have you currently like this book A kid who actually wants to play high school ball not for anything else , but just wanting to play Now a days everyone wants to play because it comes with benefits This book reflects [...]

    This is my favorite book about basketball It s about a young high schooler who doesn t make the basketball team even after practicing so hard two years in a row He didn t even mess up at the tryouts It was because the coach had something personal against him, which is unfortunate for him because he could have made it those two years Then when his senior year comes, he finally makes it not only cause he did well at the tryouts, but because the team got a new coach since the previous one stepped d [...]

    This book had several appealing aspects, although some are very sad For one, there is the dealing of a father s death What is such a terrible thing to happen to a youth does happen, and to watch a character deal with it is very interesting Then there is Nick s situation It was great to see the hope he brought despite all he was going through Many teens would hopefully find some inspiration from this Finally, there is the new high school part of her situation Again, something that so many experie [...]

    I read this book because of a bet with a student over the explanation of a character s name Seven Although I lost the bet, the meaning of the character s name was not revealed, as a student pointed out to me, it was fun to read teen fiction The writing did not make me stop to appreciate any striking sentence structure or beautiful imagery however, it is a good story about how we sometimes outgrow childhood friendships and need to let go The theme about racial prejudice feels a little forced, but [...]

    I read this book outloud to Josiah and Haven It was eerily similar to some basketball situations they have been in, so that was fun to read with them They felt a little frustrated about how hung up the book was or what a central theme it was to have the racial issues within the plot It never gave too defining of an idea of what time period it was, but it certainly wasn t in a time of major tension or a location where racial issues are a deeply seeded as they seemed to be Otherwise, it was a good [...]

    This book was pretty tight In this book a Polish kid didn t make the basketball team his soph and junior year In his senior year they switched coaches and he made the team He didn t make the team before because the coach thought he was racist But once they switched coaches he did good on the team and started The rest of the book talks about when he was on the basketball team, and the events that happened.

  29. Dhruv Patel

    This book is really good I would think that people that like basketball would like this book Its about a polish boy thats not that really good at basketball and keeps trying out for the basketball team but can never make it because of the coach HE keeps on practicing and gets better and when he is a senior he makes the team and is really good The team makes the state playoffs but they get second.
