About the Author:

When Sean Tiffany was growing up, he lived on a small island off the coast of Maine. Every day, from sixth grade until he graduated from high school, he had to take a boat to get to school. When Sean isn't working on his art, he works on a multimedia project called "OilCan Drive," which combines music and art. He has a pet cactus named Jim.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–8—These stories deliver lots of action. In Free Throw, Derek is named center during his second year of basketball as he is now the tallest player, and he shares his struggles and success to meet the challenges of the position. The second title is narrated by Robby, whose determination propels him to overcome self-doubt and personal failure, along with taunts and injury from a teammate, to achieve success. When he is moved from his position as center to defensive tackle, he replaces disappointment with resolve and acquires knowledge that serves him well when he substitutes for an injured center. There is no information about the ages of these characters, and little description of life off the court or field. The clear descriptions, realistic dialogue, abundant action, and touches of humor will appeal to younger children, as well as to middle school or older readers who are working to bolster their skills. They will appreciate the large font and the comic-book-style drawings that illuminate the texts. Both books conclude with discussion questions and writing prompts.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
