Excellent introduction into the life of a sport superstar.
This book is an excellent introduction for young people into the life of a basketball superstar. It doesn't speak down to them or sugar-coat the flaws in character that normally fill adolescent literature.I wanted to get abook for my nephew for Christmas, but found myself immersed in the writingof this one. . Kemp came off asmuch more three dimensional than I wouldhave expected.Plenty of pictures, although I would have preferred morevariety. Many of them seem to be action shots from the same game.And, Iwant to stress this is young adult literature,so don't expect Joyce.But,I was very impressed with it on the level it was, and would recommend itfor anyyoungster. My nephew liked it.
