"Dunk grips readers from the very first sentence and doesn't let go until the last." (School Library Journal)
"Dunk confirms Lubar's growing stature as an author of distinctive, intriguing, and highly original young adult fiction." (Voice of Youth Advocates)
I found this book very enjoyable. Hearing the book with a full cast really brought it to life. The main character reminded me of when I was 15 and really brought back lots of memories for me. I highly recomend this book to young and old alike.
This book is appealing on many levels. The narrator is a deep, but compelling character that exposes the vulnerable side of adolescence that we all experience at some point in life. The need to make our own decisions, but to learn from others around us is a recurring theme in this sometimes humorous, always touching book. First loves, support of parents and the desire for greatness are all seen in this well written and always enjoyable walk down the boardwalk during a summer of growth and maturing.
Good story based as much rich characters as on the plot of the story. It is well read and this in itself will help it hold the attention of the younger audience.
