Booklist - 09/01/2021 An unlikely team of middle-school b-ballers proves that anything is possible in this collaborative novel by basketball phenom James and talented writer Williams. Jayden, Tamika, Chris, Anthony, and Dex come from different but connected backgrounds that involve dealing with illness, financial instability, bullying, and more. In spite of what could be obstacles and differing definitions of team, this “Hoop Group” ultimately comes together on the court. Though the third-person narration may add distance for some readers, the book’s characters are well defined, and its story is full of family feeling, dedication, and complicated personal situations. Perfect for middle-grade readers who crave a bit more inspiration, perspiration, and elation from their sports stories, this elevates the stakes for young readers and includes a sincere pride of place and sense of belonging. This Hoop Group proves that no matter their sizes, genders, or backgrounds, nothing can stop kids determined to go the distance. A book that is truly a mirror and a window—score a win for this inspiring sports story! - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
