“Travel Team” by Mike Lupica

30 May


12-year old Danny thought he had a great chance of making Middletown's 7th grade basketball travel team. To his surprise, despite his hustle and playmaking abilities, the coaches cut him because he's simply too short. Danny's estranged dad, former NBA guard Richie, helps Danny organize a competing team. Of course, there's a big final game between the new rivals … but I won't spoil it for you here. You'll have to suspend some of your disbelief to enjoy this story to its fullest, but the relationships between Danny and his friends/teammates are real enough to make it work. And, if it's sports action you're looking for, you'll find plenty of basketball play-by-plays here.
