Book Report by Jordan Heinrichs
You have feel like you get cheated for your hight? Well that is what happen to this boy in Travel Team. This book takes place in New York. Danny Walker was one of the best players in his town, but because of his hight he was cut from the travel team. This caused his dad to coach a new travel with Danny on it. First practice was a nightmare! This changed though because the best girl in their league and another best player joined their team. This made for an exciting basketball season. Danny's new team actually ended up beating the team he was cut from. It was an exciting year for Danny and his father as his coach. Danny had a great year.
What did you enjoy about the book?
What I enjoyed about this book was that it was about basketball. I also enjoyed to read about a kid that was short but was still able to do really good in basketball after being cut from his team.
If the book was well written, what made it that way?
This book was written pretty well. It had some suspense on what Danny was going to do after he got cut from the one travel team and if his new team would beat the team he was cut from.
What was the purpose for the author writing this book?
I think the purpose for the author writing this book was to show that it doesn't matter what your size is you can still succeed. I also think he wanted to show that you should not give up even if you have been cut. If you really want something go get it.
Why would you recommend this book?
I would recommend this book for just a nice sports book to read. It is cool to see what Danny was able to do. This book is an easy good read.
