" this book incourages you to never give up. " said.

" This book was okay, but i dont really like basketball. " said.

" I like Playing Foward because of the way the guy sucks at the begging and then wins the game for the team at the end " said.

" This is another solid piece of sports fiction for early-middle elementary-aged kids. It has a simple story with a focus on the main character's thoughts and feelings, and a fair amount of play-by-play sports action. " said.

" Playing Forward is a good series for boys who are interested in sports stories. Great for a 2nd or 3rd grader. Playing Forward follows two brothers Eli and Isaac who both love the game of basketball. Eli is tall, popular, and is very a talented basketball player. Isaac sometimes feels he is not as good as his brother but winds up trying out for the team. Will Isaac will be just as good as his brother to get on the team at his school. Can he show that he can play forward. " said.

"Isaac Roth just wants to play starting power forward like his star older brother does for the high school team. But his skills fit the position of point guard, a position that has none of the glory of power forward. Isaac is angry when fellow teammate Dwayne gets forward, and is out to prove he's the right person for it. But when he plays as forward, he quickly finds what his true calling is.

This is just one book in a series of similar sport themed short chapter books. While the main character is in middle school, the extremely short length and quick movement of the text make it suitable for younger readers, not to mention great for reluctant middle school readers. The book is rather jargon heavy, which will delight young sports fans, but is not so heavy that readers unfamiliar with the terms can't figure them out through context.

Suggest to: young sports fans age 7-14. reluctant readers, those looking for short books with fast pacing
