Baltimore - Hoop City - Youth Services Book Review

Marcus excels in both football and basketball. A Division 1 scholarship should be in the bag but a physical confrontation with a white player just might ruin his chances for success. This is an excellent choice for reluctant readers, those reading below grade level and ESL students. Strong, likeable characters, realistic situations, very well done. Recommend to high school students interested in sports, especially boys and those ready to graduate.
