Full Court Dreams by Jake Maddox

Reviewed by Mrs. Kirby-LeMon at Skano

Basketball, basketball, basketball...Annie has spent the whole summer practicing basketball. Last year she and her friends didn't make the team, but hopefully that won't happen again. There are a few things standing in Annie's way, however. Mean girls Sarah and Dani keep teasing her before, during and after tryouts. The taunting rattles her confidence and distracts her leading to missed shots and dropped passes. To make things worse, there's a new coach for the team, so Annie doesn't know what to expect.

In addition to a suspenseful plot and detailed descriptions of the drills used during tryouts, this book offers factual information about the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA).
