Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Fall

When fifth graders Rip and Red get an unconventional new teacher, there are big changes--which for Red, who's on the autism spectrum, spell big anxiety. Narrator Rip's empathy for his friend helps both boys not only adjust but excel in surprising new ways. Bildner's portrayal of an ASD child is sensitive and thoughtful in this entertaining, diversely populated school story.

PW Reviews 2015 May #3

Rip and his best friend Red, who is on the autism spectrum, can't wait to be on their school's fifth-grade basketball team. But budget cuts, a focus on test prep, and a new teacher/basketball coach with tattoos, ear piercings, and a wealth of unconventional ideas are shaking things up. Rip isn't sure that Mr. Avecedo's methods will work (on or off the court), especially when he has to work on a group project paired with a hostile classmate, Avery, who uses a wheelchair. But through Mr. Avecedo's guidance, Rip, who some see only as "the black kid who plays basketball," and his classmates learn to see beyond the labels society places on them. The book's messages about teamwork, test-prep dependency, and stepping outside one's comfort zone can be overpowering, but this warm slice-of-life novel from Bildner (the Sluggers series) engages and entertains even so. Probert's energetic illustrations match the positive exuberance of the story as both test day and the big game approach. Ages 8–12. Author's agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. (Aug.)
