Sideline Pressure

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

A fun, high-energy, middle-grade fiction series perfect for young sports fans ages 8-12!

The Predators are on a hot streak, but their star shooter is in a slump. Drew Borders isn’t putting up the numbers, and no one—except Mac—wants to go on record as to why. It’s obvious to Mac that Drew’s overly critical and loud father, powerful attorney Larry Borders, is the root of the problem. When Drew is benched, and the sideline commentary from Mr. Borders doesn’t stop, Mac decides to take matters into his own hands. Will the Predators miss out on the conference final with their sharpshooter riding the pine? And what happens when Mac uses his investigative reporting to call Mr. Borders’ behavior into question?

Stewart “Mac” McKenzie is THE sports expert at Coyote Canyon Middle School. While he scores big on the court with his wheelchair basketball team, his love for all sports is equally epic. There isn’t a stat he doesn’t know, a player’s name he doesn’t recognize, a big game he hasn’t seen.

Hott Review:

Sideline Pressure is a terrific book!

Perfect for sports loving middle-grade boys and girls, Sideline Pressure combines sports with a too-true plot to have kids on the edge of their seat in a book even reluctant readers will devour!

I’m sad to share that this parent led drama that caused a middle-school team so much stress is all too often true. I however, LOVED how the characters handled it and how they stuck together. It’s a great example for young readers and, hopefully, a warning to their parents.

If you know a middle-grade sports fan grab them a copy of Sideline Pressure! They’ll love you forever!
