Hott Synopsis:

David cant believe he didn’t make the team! What were they thinking? Oh, it would have been nice if they’d given him a good reason – like, your jump shot needs work – but no, he didn’t make the team because he’s too small.
David tried to give up on basketball, he really did, but it called to him. So again he’s on the court pretending he’s something and wishing he was a part of the team. But this time others show up. Others who should have made the team. Others who love the game like David does.
If only they could make their own team…

Hott Review:

I LOVED this book! It was terrific. It was written so that middle-graders will love it – as well as their moms 😉 – and want to read the entire series. It’s not just about basketball. It’s about believing in yourself. It’s about real friends. It’s about teamwork. It’s about growing up.
I can’t wait to read more in this series!!

Author Bio:

A.D. Erving (Amir Doron) was born in August 1974, and has been a basketball fan his whole life. After playing four years of professional basketball overseas, Erving went on to coach the game for nine years, working with children and teenagers both on and off the court. Although he grew up a diehard Philadelphia 76ers fan, Erving’s allegiance has shifted in recent years to individual players who he admires. Some of his current favorites include Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Paul Pierce, and – of course – Stephen Curry. His absolute favorite player of all time, though, is Julius “Dr. J” Erving, who played for the 76ers. When A.D. Erving was seven years old, he met Dr. J in-person, and a picture of the two of them was published in the local paper. This encounter with his basketball idol is one of Erving’s all-time favorite memories.

Now in his thirties, A.D. Erving works as a content producer and businessman, in addition to his job as a children’s author. He enjoys writing and answering trivia questions, and even used to work as trivia writer for TV shows. In his spare time, he loves jogging, reading, watching basketball, and spending time with his wife and kids, who are six and two-and-a-half years old.
