9781552776902: Triple Threat (Lorimer Sports Stories)

Matthew Eagletail can't wait until his online friend John Salton flies from San Francisco to Bragg Creek, Alberta for a summer visit. John is almost as big a basketball fan as Matt is, and dreams of being the first coach in the NBA to use a wheelchair. When Matt's sister Jazz tells them about the upcoming Rocky Mountain Summer Basketball League in Calgary, they decide immediately to get a team together. Unfortunately, so does Matt's archrival, John Beal. Soon the Bobcats and the Mean Machine are fighting it out on the court, determined to win by any means necessary. It's too close to call, until Matt and John get some crucial advice from an unexpected source. Triple Threat is a basketball novel that smokes down court with hard-hitting action and suspense.

Review:

"This thoughtful and action-packed novel will appeal to both boys and girls who like basketball. The book could also be used in classrooms to raise awareness of some of the mobility issues that people in wheelchairs face. Recommended." (Lorraine Douglas Canadian Book Review Annual)

"What makes this book readable is the constant reminder that games and sports should be fun...this little book has a positive message, which young people need to be taught and retaught." (Ian Stewart Canadian Review of Materials)

"A hard-hitting, action-packed story of competition on and off the basketball court. For sports enthusiasts, particularly basketball players, this is a great novel. For those of us just interested in a good story, author Jacqueline Guest provides enough off-court interest in her unique Thoreau family characters to capture the reader's interest." (Gail Lennon Resource Links)

"Good story for sports fans. Wonderful message about not underestimating people with handicaps. Loved the way bullying was dealt with." (Tracy Mathis, Grade 3 Teacher 2013-06-25)
