I thought that hoop girlz was just flat out awesome, motivating, interesting, nail-biting, and fabulous!!! River Borowitz-Jacobs and her hoop girlz team enters a Oregon Coast tournament, their rivals are playing in it too. Will River and her confident team-working team beat her rivals the A-team (Azalea team)? Find out by reading the book.

River's lifelong dream is to play basketball in the WNBA, just like her hometown role model Emily Hargraves. The 6th grade team will participate in a tournament, where the MVP gets to meet Hargraves and attend her basketball camp. River is devastated when she makes the B-team instead of the A-team, and considers quitting until she is encouraged to take charge. She renames the team the Hoop Girlz and recruits other outcasts. The team's goal is to have fun. Can the Hoop Girlz compete against the o ...more
BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love basketball so this book REALLY got me interested. all of you people who love basketball should read this book.
this book is about a girl named river and she has this dream of being mvp of the year but unfortuanatly she doesnt make th team.
i wont tell u the rest but its a really really really really really good book!
River couldn't wait to see who made the team. She looked at the two teams and frowned. She was on B-team, not on A-team. She no longer wanted to play basketball, but all the B-team girls wanted to play. It would be River's job to make this team into a champion team. No more B-team. This team is Hoop Girlz.
I think that this book is a great model for elementary-age girls who want to play sports, so that they don't feel that they shouldn't because they're girls. The book itself was pretty good for elementary school, as an adult, I thought the plot was a little bland.
A very easy read, but read a few years ago.
