Reviews

Booklist Reviews 2012 September #1

In the third volume of his Guys Read series (the first focused on humor, and the second on thrillers), editor Scieszka turns his attention to sports, serving up 10 stories about baseball, football, basketball, running, hockey, and mixed martial arts. The contributions come from the likes of Jacqueline Woodson, Gordon Korman, and Joseph Bruchac, and—in a nod to nonfiction—there are two mini memoirs by hockey phenom Dustin Brown and CBS sports anchor James Brown. The overall tone is light: Anne Ursu turns in a story about a little white lie that turns into a whopper; Chris Rylander conjures up a tale about a boy who dreams of exacting revenge on no less a sports luminary than Derek Jeter; and Korman offers a good-natured story about the kidnapping of a sports trophy. In his introduction, Scieszka wisely notes that good stories and good games are alike: Both reveal character and truths bigger than the game or the story. Readers, boys and girls alike, need look no further than these stories for the proof of that. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring

This collection of sports-centric short stories by Dan Gutman, Tim Green, Chris Crutcher, and other popular authors spans a variety of sports and addresses such athletics-related struggles as overcoming pressure, high expectations, teamwork, and gaining confidence; there are two brief autobiographical pieces by real athletes. Some stories are less exciting than expected, but most will engage the target boy audience.
