TALL MAN IN THE PIVOT by Matt Christopher


Email this review


The Condors made a great team, both on and off the basketball court. Their coordination, team spirit and cooperation resulted in some striking victories. How disheartening for Chuck when he finds that his precious marble bag has been raided by a locker room thief. It was certainly good to know Steve was innocent but shocking and disappointing when the evidence points to his closest pal Mickey. How could a fellow trust anyone if such a could happen! What a sweeping relief then to welcome Mickey's vindication and his reinstatement as a ""pal"", a super-special designation outdoing the mundane ""friend"". Play by play descriptions of on-the-court action combine with a sensitive glance at the values and ideals of typical youngsters and convey a quality authentic in its boyishness. This is sure to find an appreciative audience among the lower echelons of this age group.
