Swifter, higher, stronger: a photographic history of the Summer Olympics by Sue Macy (Author)
Gym Candy by Carl Deuker (Author)
What is this book about?
Lonnie Jackson, like many other Harlem natives has game. But to a former NBA star (now an average Joe named Cal), Lonnie has something special that he feels will take him to the pros. With Cal coaching, Lonnie and his homeboys are entered into a tournament that is watched on TV, as well as college scouts. And there are many incidents that break his concentration.
What do you like/dislike about it?
I like that he went through some realistic problems that many up and coming ball players go through.
Who would enjoy reading it?
People who enjoy realistic, athletic, and somewhat inspiring books.
