Reviews

Nine all-stars in the field of YA lit contribute stories...an anthology of standalone stories that invite - no, demand - a straight read-through.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

Tying all the stories together is a shared love and respect not only for the game itself, but also for the lavishly talented (and all-too-often fatally flawed) legends od New York City playground basketball. An outstanding collection that belongs in every high school library.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Superb stories by writers who know and love the game; and ode to the show.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
