Editorial Reviews

"Coldwell captures very effectively the assurance and studied cool of the age group. Ian Watt's cover art...effectively captures basketball's physicality and will attract its intended audience."

— Canadian Materials

"There's plenty of basketball action, camp fun, and one of the zaniest kids outside a Gordon Korman novel--pretty good value."

— Vancouver Sun

"Eight- to 13-year-olds will find this a zippy read and will groove to the fast and furious roundball action"

— Hamilton Spectator
