About the Author:

Matt Christopher is the best selling name behind more than 100 sports-themed books for young readers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7 Kelly is a great basketball player, so long as she doesn't have to perform in front of a crowd. But after finding a pair of red hightop sneakers in her locker, she suddenly becomes a confident, aggressive, and slightly wild player. Everyone attributes the change to the new sneakers. Are they hexed? Kelly thinks so, and she begins to doubt her ability to play without them, even though they cause trouble with teammates and opponents. Christopher throws in clues to implicate many of Kelly's friends and the coach as the anonymous sneaker doner, but many of them are dead ends contrived to make this slight plot into a sports story with a mystery angle. There's little suspense in either category. The sports action is full of shot-jab-foul-shot, but even in the close games the tension isn't there to make it exciting. There's an unfortunate reference to not being an ``Indian giver.'' Once the unbelievable secret of the sneakers is revealedbest friend Ester had them chemically treated to improve Kelly's gamethe story comes quickly to a close. It's hard to believe the sudden interest everyone has in the power of Kelly's sneakers in this far-fetched story that is taken oh-so-seriously. Susan Schuller, Milwaukee Public Library
