Read full description of the books:
The book I read was “Quicks” by Kevin Waltman. In this story about D-bow, a high school senior who plays basketball. The school they go to is called Marion East High School. Their high school has never even been to a championship! D-bow becomes determined to take their school to a championship for his first and last time. The championship isn’t the main focus of the book, though. D-bow has a huge list of schools looking to recruit him for college. He has to choose. He has about twelve different schools keeping an eye of him. His decisions vary throughout the book, and they are disrupted by a couple things going on at home. His mom is pregnant, his dad is an abusive drunk, and his girlfriend is indecisive and clingy. D-bows uncle is the new coach, and there is a freshman who keeps trying to steal D-bows spot. Coach doesn’t do anything to help so that results in conflict against the team and possibly against the colleges looking at him. What’s he going to pick?

Read information about the authorKevin Waltman was born in Bedford, Pennsylvania, and spent his teens and twenties in Indiana--time spent mostly around basketball courts and political events. He moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 2001 to get his MFA in fiction at The University of Alabama. There, he met his wife, Jessica Kidd. He now lives in Coker, Alabama, with Jessica, their daughter Calla, and their dog Henry. He teaches. He writes. He gardens. He cuts kudzu from their woods.
He is the author of four y.a. novels. The first two are Nowhere Fast and Learning the Game. The two most recent--Next and Slump--are the first two parts of a four-part series from Cinco Puntos Press. The third in the series, Pull, will be out in late 2015.
