Student Saturday: Hoops by Walter Dean Myers

Publisher:  Laurel Leaf, 1983
Pages:  192
Genre:  Young Adult, Realistic Fiction

Today's review is by my student Zackary and is entered as he wrote it.

Hoops is about a teenager who lives in New Jersey and likes to play basketball.  He lives by a gym and he decides to join a basketball team like all of his friends.  The basketball coach tells the team about how he thinks they can make it to championships.  Their basketball team is good and they win a lot of games.  Coach calls him over to talk during practice.  Coach tells him that he used to be a basketball player and he thinks he can go pro too.  That is what the book Hoops is about and I thought it was an okay book.  I recommend it to anyone who likes sports books.
