Abstract:

Overview: This powerful middle-grade novel about a young basketball hopeful and his alcoholic father is sports fiction at its unforgettable best. Danny, ten, dreams of being a basketball star. He takes the game seriously, practicing and playing as much as he can. He also dreams of the day when his father, a mechanic with endless stories of his own high school basketball stardom, will acknowledge Danny's hard work with some words of love and praise. But it never happens. Though Danny's efforts finally pay off and he becomes a skilled player, his struggle to win his father's love seems hopeless. Here is a heart-felt book about sports, alcoholism, and hard-won family love that delivers an encouraging message and packs a tremendous emotional punch.
