As a boy, Walter Dean Myers was quick-tempered and always ready for a fight. He also read voraciously. Books had given him both an identity and a way to affect the world, his son, Christopher Myers, told me recently. He felt that he owed books a repayment, he said

Hoops, by Walter Dean Myers is a fast paced, action packed, fictional novel that focuses on Lonnie's love for basketball; as he lives in a dangerous environment. In the story, Lonnie because he lives in a dangerous environment he acts in which other people in his area are doing; which in his case is negative. For example, there was a part of the story when teenagers were stealing cargo from a truck, while the driver was inside a store talking to someone; when Lonnie saw this happen he decided to do it as well. This tells me that Lonnie is following the people that think they are above the law. Not only is their negative characters and plots in this novel, but there is also positive as well; like the character Cal One reason why he brings a positive plot because, Cal was a amazing professional basketball player, but then one day he made a horrible mistake that ruined his career and banned him from playing in the NBA anymore. With this memory of what messed up his life he tries to help Lonnie not make the same mistake he made. Hoops doesn't just have unique plots, it also has conflicts that will continue through the whole story. An example of this is when, the story first tells the readers about someone who made the deal with Cal, that messed up his life and career and his name was Tyrone. Later on we find out that Tyrone was trying to do the same thing to Lonnie; at the end the conflict between Cal and Tyrone becomes so violent and negative that Tyrone at the end kills Cal, but luckily Tyrone goes to jail at the end. So in my opinion hoops is a great book that has a fast paced plot, and great characters, i recommend this book to people who like basketball and action packed books.

This was for my oldest grandson, because it was assigned to him as a summer reading book. He liked it alot more than he thought he would after he started reading it. Very fast delivery and in perfect condition just as described.

Hoops met my expectations and my son enjoyed the read. The language was a bit raw (expletives) and dated but the story/relationships between characters was timeless. Good book for a kid who enjoys sports but is not a fan of reading.
