KIRKUS REVIEW

North Island is a fairly new community which gets a new school and then- while delayed- a new gym; also a Coach with not too much experience. This is an account of Peenie (sic!) Marsh's season, from practice session to a first losing game when the poor teamwork accounts for the loss. Finally Peenie, as Captain, manages to motivate and integrate the team.... More sport than story, this works in the fundamentals of the game but there is certainly no character identification... Faint interest except where pre-established.
