Bennett Ryan is a superb young basketball player who propelled her team to a regional championship. But in her senior year she discovers there's a lot she doesn't know. She has to switch schools, for one thing, and learn to fit in with the team she helped defeat the previous year. What's more she confronts a far more complex world than she's been used to -- a new friend who is on the autism spectrum, as well as team-mates from a diversity of cultures. Finally she has to face her old team -- and some old assumptions -- in a dramatic playoff game.

In the Swish is a coming of age story about friendship made and friendships tested set against the fast-paced world of competitive girls' basketball. Winner of the 2016 Bolen Books Children's Book Prize On the Fall 2016 edition of the CCBC's Best Books for Kids and Teens

Winner of the 2016 Bolen Books Children's Book Prize

Jurors' Citation:

"None of the jurors were basketball fans, but they found it impossible not to respond to the passion for the game that infuses this intelligent coming-of-age novel. Nicely told, believable characters, and interesting developments that explore friendships and what it means to win and lose."

On the Fall 2016 edition of the CCBC's Best Books for Kids & Teens

2016 Ontario Library Association Best Bets program: honourable mention

2017 Snow Willow Award nominee
