    Sixth grader Pedro is an excellent basketball player. When he decides to run for class president against Ned, his teammate, a fabulously talented basketball player and one of the most popular boys at school, it creates problems for Pedro both on and off the court. This book includes lots of basketball jargon, description of plays, and strategies, but also incorporates strong “family values” in the strong relationship between Pedro and his dad Luis. The author emphasizes teamwork over individual efforts as the way to win in sports as well as life.

    He’s an athlete and he enjoys reading. I thought this might be a little too advanced for him but it’s right on the mark. His favorite was the Comeback Kids that focused on football. He thought that was the best out of the bunch, but liked this one very much too and would recommend it to any boy who enjoys playing sports and loves sports movies geared toward kids.
