author and school teacher, writes a novel every year. Some of his books you
may have read include: The Money Pit Mystery, Northern Exposures,
and many more. Of the three I've read, all excellent, I was truly awed by
Rebound. It could have been the characters' attitudes, or their
situations, but the plot enthralled me.
David was a basketball star, an excellent player, so good that he was already starting to attract university and college scouts. Then, a terrible accident left him trapped in a wheelchair.
Sean, one of the school delinquents, was in major trouble all last year. He hung out with the wrong people, got into a lot of fights and was suspended numerous times. Unfortunately, this year starts off no better, and due to a first-day-back-to-school fight, Sean is forced into being a host. The job ... to show the new boy, David, around the school.
I would give this novel about growing up five stars, and recommend it to boys and girls ages 12 and up.
