When a basketball team’s star forward loses his confidence, he has to learn how to think like a winner again.
Brett Carter, the Wildcats’ star forward, plays to win. Brett likes being the best at whatever he does. However, his confidence is shaken when he misses a routine layup during an important game and his team loses. Now every time he is on the court, his heart starts pounding and he feels something he has never experienced before: fear. When his coach tells Brett about well-known players from the past who made successful comebacks after disappointing performances, Brett realizes he can overcome his nervousness. But is it too late to save the Wildcats’ season?
Author Fred Bowen continues his Sports Story series with full court, play-by-play action that’s sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats! An afterword offers more information on well-known players and their hard-fought comebacks.

About the Author:

Fred Bowen is the author of Peachtree’s popular Fred Bowen Sports Story series. A lifelong sports fanatic, he has coached youth league baseball, basketball, and soccer. His kids’ sports column “The Score” appears each week in the KidsPost section of the Washington Post. Bowen lives in Maryland.

From Booklist:

Brett Carter, star of his basketball team and most everything else, develops a nasty case of the yips after his misses an easy game-winning layup. His confidence gets further shaken when he freaks out halfway up a climbing wall and muffs a question in the school social-studies bee. How's he going to get the touch back? This entry in the Fred Bowen Sports Story series is flush with life lessons about perseverance, dedication, and picking oneself up after a hard knock, not to mention loads of on-court action. It reads like a succesful drive to the hoop—quick, purposeful, and effective. Grades 4-7. --Ian Chipman
