"The Miracle of St. Anthony is about basketball, but it's also about race, education, sociology, inner cities, and America in this new millennium. Adrian Wojnarowski is a wonderful writer, and this is a wonderful book."
-Bill Reynolds, Providence Journal sports reporter and author of Fall River Dreams
"Everything conspires against the kids at St. Anthony's, not only their dingy gym, their decaying high school, and a city where despair is as common as drunks hanging outside a tattoo parlor, but they also conspire against themselves, with attitude to spare. They need a lot more than prayers, but thanks to the devotion of a couple of dedicated nuns and a veteran coach who won't take no for an answer, they get it in Adrain Wojnarowski's heart-stopping saga about a championship season that is as improbable as it is delightful, as poignant as it uplifting."
-Madeleine Blais, author of In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle and Uphill Walkers
"The North Jersey gritty urbanism of Richard Price meets harsh Hoop Dreams reality in Adrian Wojnarowski's The Miracle of St. Anthony, a beautifully crafted tale dedicated to the proposition that no child be left behind as long as they are willing to follow a true American hero like Bob Hurley."
-Harvey Araton, New York Times sports reporter and coauthor of Money Players
"It takes two ingredients to make a book special: a great story and a great storyteller. The Miracle of St. Anthony has both. Bob Hurley is a remarkable coach; Adrian Wojnarowski his equal as a writer."
-John Feinstein, author of A Season on the Brink
