Mason's basketball team, the Cabbagetown Raptors, is going co-ed after seven successful seasons. He's pretty open-minded about the change, especially after he meets Cindy, a really top-notch player. The other guys aren't so sure.
Before long everyone has taken sides, and the Raptors' chances of making the national finals seem to fade into oblivion. When Mason's growing friendship with Cindy goes sour, however, he takes it upon himself to make things better, both with Cindy and the team.
Fast-paced and action-packed, Slam Dunk explores issues that arise when boys and girls play together on mixed teams. [Fry Reading Level - 4.2

STEVEN BARWIN is a television writer who has written for such shows as John Woo's television series Once a Thief; The Royal Canadian Air Farce; and Street Cents. He is also a middle school teacher in Thornhill, Ontario.From School Library Journal:
Gr 5-7-Two slim books set in Canada. In Slam Dunk, Mason's junior high basketball coach announces that the Raptors are going coed. Though Cindy and the other girls play well at practice, several boys refuse to cooperate and, consequently, the team loses its first game. At a party organized to help unify the team, a few boys drink beer and Mason is taunted into participating even though he realizes that it's wrong. When Cindy discovers them, she insists that they leave. Eventually, the Raptors work out their differences and win the championship. In Shark Attack, Matt's struggling baseball team suffers a humiliating loss. He desperately wants to impress his father, but fears he can never equal the sports success of his all-star older brother. The boy devises a plan involving a prank call, is caught, and lightly punished (his offense would merit far more severe consequences on most sports teams). Still determined to improve the team's play and spirit, Matt then helps to formulate a new, legitimate strategy. Though these entries are short and may appeal to reluctant readers, they are not first purchases.-Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL
