A Grand read

A true story

  This is an awesome  read for the  most part.  I read  it not because I am a sports  fan but  because  I wanted  to see how life in the  1970's really was like.  wow was I in for a  surprise,  I knew  so little  about this  time and how poorly black people were treated.   In this  chapter book we see how friendships  change a town.  One will follow two boys  life  story  as they grow up with  a fond love for basket ball. Not: some of the  romance I did  not think was necessary in this story.  I found it filled up pages for  nothing. This  story shows  a black boy and a white boy, taught  to hate each other who cross he boundaries because of basketball.

In the  end I felt  like I learned bout the  segregation blacks felt ( at that  time they still had their own parks, sides of streets and stores), and actually understood basketball for the  first time. Because of this book I now want to be at a game.  Ken Abraham has done a fantastic  job!

I received this book free from the publishers and was not required to write a positive review.
