Publisher synopsis: In the sixth book in the New York Times bestselling middle grade series inspired by the life of iconic New York Yankee Derek Jeter, young Derek bites off more than he can chew when he decides to enter the school talent shaw and try out for the basketball team.
I read the first book or two in the series and found them pleasant yet predictable. Nice lessons about sportsmanship, commitment and time management. My students enjoy them and sell the books to each other. In fact, it was a student who finished book 5 who asked for the next installment that alerted me . Thanks Joe!
