Booklist Reviews 2017 November #1

Basketball is Adam Reed's lifeline after he moves with his adoptive mother, Renata, from Philadelphia to Northrup, Minnesota. Renata adopted Adam from Warsaw after his mother died and his father abandoned him at an orphanage. While Adam excels on the court, school is harder. He doesn't like practicing his English, his classmates bully him, and his one true friend is the school outcast, Barry. When Adam gets the chance to play for an elite AAU team, he learns he's not the only one struggling with being ostracized. The director of the organization that runs Adam's new team is subtly racist against his black players, and Adam has to learn what it means to be black in America (he displays some ignorance about how police treat black kids), and acclimate to a different kind of team playing. Lessons on small-town politics and what it means to be a good friend abound in this well-plotted work. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Spring

Adopted Polish American Adam relates--in broken English--his high-school basketball successes and his move to a diverse town in Minnesota. In the often-humorous first-person narrative, socially insecure and self-involved Adam adjusts his comfort zone thanks to his friend, teammates, coach, and crush. Herbach fully develops secondary characters, and he skillfully intertwines social, political, racial, and economic issues with exciting basketball action. Copyright 2019 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
