About the Author:

Bruce Brooks was born in Virginia and began writing fiction at age ten. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1972 and from the University Of Iowa Writer's Workshop in 1980. He has worked as a newspaper reporter, a magazine writer, newsletter editor, movie critic, teacher and lecturer.

Bruce Brooks has twice received the Newbery Honor, first in 1985 for Moves Make the Man, and again in 1992 for What Hearts. He is also the author of Everywhere, Midnight Hour Encores, Asylum for Nightface, Vanishing, and Throwing Smoke. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Review:

"Brooks's fine first novel has a baskeball theme and plenty of action, but sport is merely the vehicle for delivering a serious story of friendship and madness." --"SLJ." "Brilliant sportswriting and a trenchant examination of the friendship between narrator Jerome Foxworthy [an African-American seventh-grader] and Bix, a white boy in trouble." --"BL."
