" Love this series. Phil Bildner has crafted a series that has characters that readers can relate to and a classroom we all want to be part of. " said.

" i mostly gotten my daughter this book cause i got tired of her reading spongebob joke books and she love's it " said.

" Loved this book! A great book for elementary age kids! This is going to be a great series of books! A terrific sequel to the first book! Really touches on autism in a way kids will understand! Terrific author! Loved the sports theme ! Highly recommended! " said.

" *I received an eARC of this book from Net Galley*I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first. A Whole New Ballgame has circulated fairly well, and I think this will go over even better with students. There is a lot of basketball in this book, interesting character development, and a compelling plot. " said.

" This is another great story about Rip & Red. There are several awesome characters in this story, including their teacher, Mr, Acevedo, who runs a pretty cool classroom. (I think he has read The Book Whisperer!). If you enjoyed A Whole New Ballgame, this one will not disappoint!I received an advanced copy on Netgalley. " said.

" Another great story from Phil Bildner about two boys, Rip and Red, who love to play basketball and have each other's backs. This one has big themes of friendship, dealing with the new kid (who is somewhat annoying and a really good basketball player), fighting for what's right, and the family that is a school. There are also some hints about prejudice that might make for an interesting conversation. I liked this one a lot. " said.

"Bildner, Phil Rookie of the Year, Illustrated by Tim Probert, 254 pages. Farrar Straus Giroux. 2016. $15.99. Language: G (0 swears, 0 "f"); Mature Content: G; Violence: G;

Rookie of the Year is the perfect book for basketball fans and a great sequel to A Whole New Ballgame! Rip and Red are great friends that hook readers right from the beginning. Their basketball games are described play-by-play in a way that any basketball reader is sure to enjoy!

""In a matter of hours, Tiki had taken over my table in class, taken over my booth in the cafeteria, and taken over basketball."

Rip (Mason Irving) and Red (Blake Daniels) are back in a second book in the series. Due to budget cuts, things are a little unsettled. For example, the beloved Lunch Bunch have been replaced. The cafeteria just isn't the same. Added to the mix this time is Tiki (Takana Eid), a new student who immediately seems to get under Rip's skin. She never stops talking and she makes up her own words as she goes along ... "Gollygadzookers", "freakaliciously", "Hunchabalooga" and "zwibble". Who makes up their own words?

But when basketball season starts again and Tiki takes over Rip's starting position, things get even more complicated.

A quick-read sports novel with plenty else going on. I like all the references to other books that students might want to read, as well.
