Loved this book, I was anticipating reading the sequel as soon as I finished it

What pleased me about this book was how vague it was in regards to its sexual elements. This gritty and realistic book about how a relatable, impoverished, yet moody teen overcame various difficulties to improve his game in basketball was a great read.

Not for children living in the 21st century

T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E book, a very hard read for a 13 year old who doesn't speak broken english or understand 1981 getto slang. I can't believe this book was given to a 7th grade class to read and take a test on. Written in 1981 using inappropriate getto slang, broken english, drugs, sex, violence, drinking, cheating, beating women, stealing, etc. Can't wait for the next classroom book project.... And they censored Huckleberry Finn for the "N" word......... If the word offends you, don't read this book.
