- DescriptionMike Lupica sinks a three-pointer with this #1 New York Times bestselling basketball vel for any kid who has been told he's t good eugh. Twelve-year-old Danny Walker may be the smallest kid on the basketball court--but don't tell him that. Because one plays with more heart or court sense. But ne of that matters when he is cut from his local travel team, the very same team his father led to national prominence as a boy. Danny's father, still smarting from his own troubles, kws Danny isn't the only kid who was cut for the wrong reason, and together, this washed-up former player and a bunch of never-say-die kids prove that the heart simply cant be measured. Travel Team is an inspirational tale in the tradition of The Bad News Bears and Hoosiers. It will leave readers of all ages cheering. In a story every bit as exciting and tear-jerking as any vel or movie in its genre - Hoosiers, Mighty Ducks, The Bad News Bears - Danny gets his chance at glory. Lupica . . . has the kwledge of the game and the lean prose to make this a taut, realistic story t just about the game but about heart, character, and family. A winner. -Kirkus Reviews Lupica . . . sets the scene for on-court action, and delivers play-by-play descriptions . . . that will thrill basketball buffs. Genuinely affecting. -Publishers Weekly
