Winner - American Indian Youth Literature Award for Best Middle School Book - 2012

"What makes this book readable is the constant reminder that games and sports should be fun...this little book has a positive message, which young people need to be taught and retaught."

- Ian Stewart Canadian Review of Materials

"A hard-hitting, action-packed story of competition on and off the basketball court. For sports enthusiasts, particularly basketball players, this is a great novel. For those of us just interested in a good story, author Jacqueline Guest provides enough off-court interest in her unique Thoreau family characters to capture the reader's interest."

- Gail Lennon Resource Links

"This thoughtful and action-packed novel will appeal to both boys and girls who like basketball. The book could also be used in classrooms to raise awareness of some of the mobility issues that people in wheelchairs face. Recommended."

- Lorraine Douglas Canadian Book Review Annual

"Good story for sports fans. Wonderful message about not underestimating people with handicaps. Loved the way bullying was dealt with."

- Tracy Mathis, Grade 3 Teacher
