Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Danny Walker may be the smallest kid on the basketball court, but don't tell him that. Because no one plays with more heart or court sense. But none of that matters when he is cut from his local travel team, the very same team his father led to national prominence as a boy. Danny's father, still smarting from his own troubles, knows Danny isn't the only kid who was cut for the wrong reason, and together, this washed-up former player and a bunch of never-say-die kids prove that the heart simply cannot be measured.
Listen to the sequel, Summer Ball.

Critic Reviews

“In a story every bit as exciting and tear-jerking as any novel or movie in its genre - Hoosiers, Mighty Ducks, The Bad News Bears - Danny gets his chance at glory. Lupica...has the knowledge of the game and the lean prose to make this a taut, realistic story not just about the game but about heart, character, and family. A winner.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Lupica...sets the scene for on-court action, and delivers play-by-play descriptions...that will thrill basketball buffs. Genuinely affecting.” (Publishers Weekly)

Narrator


This narrorator is bad at conversations but is good at everything else. The story is pretty good but the no curses in this are weird

fantastic story about loving the game

I enjoyed how the characters were developed and to see Danny grow not just as a player but as a coach while having fun.

TRAVEL TEAM

Horrible I think that the sample should include like at least more than one chapter
