Booklist - 09/01/2018 In his third adventure (after On Point, 2018), Zayd is just weeks from his basketball team making it to playoffs and his uncle Jamal’s wedding, when he faces a serious setback: he injures his ankle during practice. At first he’s upset—what’s the point of going to practice if he can’t be out on the court playing? But he slowly begins to learn that there are different ways to be a team player, such as when he helps his sister by simplifying the choreography for a Punjabi dance number to some of Jamal’s favorite songs. When he finally gets back on the court, his performance is reserved because he is worried about further damage to his ankle, and he ends up on the sidelines again. But even that ends well: Zayd takes to heart a message from his grandpa to focus on what he can do and not on what he cannot do. Zayd, a welcome character for young readers, learns that one can be a team player even when facing personal challenges. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
