Jay Hirtle plays on the basketball team at Richmond Academy in a small rural Nova Scotian town. The team to beat is Centreville, where star player Mike Murphy is seen as Richmond's number one opponent. After the Hirtle house is destroyed by fire, Jay's family moves in with his grandfather and the kids must switch schools until the end of the school year. Jay has a choice: give up a basketball season, or play alongside his former enemy on the Centreville team.

"It is refreshing for a book to deal with a realistic situation in an honest way without glossing things over in a make-believe perfect way."

- Resource Links

"Out of Bounds on-court action is appealing for sports enthusiasts. Students who have had to change schools will understand Jay's struggles. Also readers will easily relate to Jay's sense of betrayal concerning his friends. Younger middle-years readers and reluctant readers who enjoy sports books will enjoy this book. Recommended."
