Harkrader Personal Reaction I enjoyed this book because while reading this book I really wanted Kirby who was a great down to earth kid, find his dad It was also great to see Kirby accomplish so much in just a basketball season At times I have been put in the same situation as Kirby and have had to step up as a team captain even when I have not necessarily wanted too I really liked how he showed his commitment to his team and having to make decisions even when they were tough decisions to make Also, K Personal Reaction I enjoyed this book because while reading this book I really wanted Kirby who was a great down to earth kid, find his dad It was also great to see Kirby accomplish so much in just a basketball season At times I have been put in the same situation as Kirby and have had to step up as a team captain even when I have not necessarily wanted too I really liked how he showed his commitment to his team and having to make decisions even when they were tough decisions to make Also, Kirby worked really hard to make kids feel welcomed and make friends with children who had never really had friends before I think this would be a good book to read aloud to children in your classroom to 5th graders to teach about team work and stepping up when no one else will Sometimes in life not everything is just given to you, just as the chance to go to Lawrence to meet Brett McGrew was not just given to Kirby and the basketball team, and they had to step up and take a challenge I think this may also be a good book for students to read independently if they have a step parent or there parents just got remarried Kirby got to know coach on a different level through the book and had to adjust to this new adult just as a child with a new parent might have to if they have a new step parent and do not know much about them.
I think this would be another good book to read to children or have them read about different types of families Kirby lives with his grandmother and now has a new relationship with his coach who is actually his dad Not only did Kirby have to adjust to life without a dad for a long time now he has to adjust to a new family member and not someone he has known on a personal level for very long Funny I could totally see this being successful as a Disney movie Lol It has the same kind of vibe as I have a Bad Feeling about This Kirby Nickel Loves Basketball He Loves Watching Basketball He Loves Talking About Basketball The Only Problem Is He Can T Play Basketball But Coach Has A Plan For Kirby And The Supremely Untalented Seventh Grade Team It Involves The Guys Playing Nearly Naked Only In Their Briefs Maybe The So Called Stealth Sportswear Think The Emperor S New Clothes Will Really Great book for young kids getting into basketball My son 9 and I read this together and he enjoyed it that at times he read ahead of me but insisted we go back to where we left off together every time.

From Destiny Library record, Uncoordinated Kansas seventh grader Kirby Nickel braves his coach s ire and becomes captain of the basketball team in order to help him prove that NBA star Brett McGrew is the father he has never known This would be a good book to recommend to boys especially those who need a lower reading level, but high interest The ending is predictable and happy, but you want it to be that way Some humor in the story, but not laugh out loud.

Review from Publishers Weekly Moving as fluidly as a basketball superstar in action, this big hearted first novel is set in a Kansas town renowned as the home of Brett McGrew, now a famous NBA player Though he has no apparent athletic ability, narrator Kirby Nickel joins the seventh grade basketball team in hopes of finally crossing paths with McGrew, whose jersey number is being retired in a ceremony to which the team has been invited Meeting this luminary has been a life long dream of Kirby s he is convinced that McGrew, who was a friend of the boy s mother in high school, is his father As farfetched as the premise sounds, Kirby s sincerity and conviction and the clues he uncovers lend his theory pleasing plausibility But in order to attend the event honoring McGrew, the seventh grade team must turn its record around they haven t won a game in three years The gruff coach solemnly gives each player a Stealth Warm up Suit, allegedly developed by the Marine Corps and designed to help players run faster and jump higher , announcing that, for those who don t have what it takes to control the technology, the uniforms are invisible Some funny scenes follow as the kids proceed to practice and eventually win every game dressed only in their underwear Kirby s encounter with McGrew leads to an unexpected, satisfyingly sentimental finale Even non basketball fans will savor the on court action and will cheer loudly for these determined players, especially endearingly ingenuous Kirby Ages 8 12 Oct Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved Who would ve thought that killing two birds with one stone could be taken so literally A seventh grade boy named Kirby Nickel is a lover of basketball, lives in Stuckey, Kansas, which is also know as The Basketball Capital of Kansas where basketball is very well appreciated All his life basketball is practically all he knows His cousin encourages Kirby to play basketball but Kirby just doesn t want to risk the chance of humiliation and rather watch from the stands However, one day while he Who would ve thought that killing two birds with one stone could be taken so literally A seventh grade boy named Kirby Nickel is a lover of basketball, lives in Stuckey, Kansas, which is also know as The Basketball Capital of Kansas where basketball is very well appreciated All his life basketball is practically all he knows His cousin encourages Kirby to play basketball but Kirby just doesn t want to risk the chance of humiliation and rather watch from the stands However, one day while he is in the gym with some other seventh graders, he winds up getting a permission slip to attend the school s basketball team As much as he doesn t want to play he ends up taking a risk and joins the team anyway Especially when he might get the chance to meet a NBA superstar Brett McNet McGrew,of the Kansas University Jayhawks, his idol Somehow this idol may be his father As Kirby was younger his mother passed and he now lives with his grandmother but he also has a cousin , Bragger, who lives not too far away Kirby gathers up clues and convinces Bragger that Brett McGrew is his father As the season starts Kirby and Bragger go through hardships of finding evidence to prove McGrew is Kirby s father, making their team physically capable of competing and actually meeting McGrew himself As the opportunity comes along, Kirby somehow manages to transform the team from a group of lost ducklings, into a group of superstars Even with their coach s method of playing in their invisible uniforms, or their boxers They had some type of belief that they played better that way and as their record was 14 0,they finally met Brett McGrew Little does Kirby know when Kirby does meet McGrew, thats not his biological father but is someone he doesn t expect This book was very good I really enjoyed it, as basketball player myself I found this very entertaining and loved how it was laid out I could actually keep up with what was going on and didn t get lost at all I could read this book multiple times and not get tired of it it was worth the time



I think the theme is to always work hard no matter what In the story there is a kid named Kirby Nickel and he loves basketball, loves watching it, and loves talking about it It takes place in Kansas So, Kirby has a problem, he can t play ball and he doesn t want to try out for the team to humiliate himself in front of everyone Then we was at a practice and the coach said that the Kansas University will retire a famous basketball player s jersey, and his name is Brett McNet McGrew Since Kirby s seventh grade basketball team will be part of this In the story there is a kid named Kirby Nickel and he loves basketball, loves watching it, and loves talking about it It takes place in Kansas So, Kirby has a problem, he can t play ball and he doesn t want to try out for the team to humiliate himself in front of everyone Then we was at a practice and the coach said that the Kansas University will retire a famous basketball player s jersey, and his name is Brett McNet McGrew Since Kirby s seventh grade basketball team will be part of this ceremony, Kirby thinks he should join the team so he can meet Brett McGrew Brett McGrew is Kirby s biggest fan and he thinks and is his biggest secret is that Brett is his father So Kirby and his friend one night was at Kirby s house and goes crazy about this and his friend doesn t believe him Kirby thinks since he hasn t met his dad before, he thinks Brett is his dad after doing research on his mom and Brett dancing in his mom s yearbook So he wants to go to Brett s ceremony and convince Brett that he is Kirby s dad So Kirby comes up with this wacky idea on how the basketball players can run faster, jump higher, and that the players can play longer than what they used too, and that the uniforms are invisible The one thing I liked about this book is that Kirby is pretty much like me but I am still growing as a basketball player I like learning new things about the game of basketball and hopefully I get to learnthrough my High School career Another thing I like is that Kirby looks at Brett McNet McGrew like I do to Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry Whenever they have a game I usually watch the game and if they make a good play Most likely that play would be on the Game s Highlights and I would look that up on YouTube and would watch that and would practice that whenever I get a chance to be in the gym One thing I didn t like about this book is that Kirby had to go into the Boy s Locker Room and cleans up after them I know what that is like, I can still remember the smell the odor from the locker room after gym when I was in seventh and eighth grade Especially when someone puts on a lot of Old Spice or Axe Spray on and you could barely breath because of all of the spray
