This book has won prizes in Utah for YA fiction. However, I think the judges must be adults. I enjoyed the book, but I have the feeling it appeals more to adults than to the teens for which it was written. I need to get some kids to read it. It feels like a book from the era in which it was set (1950's). It's part romance, part sports book (some good basketball adventures) and part foiling-bullies book. It's 50's clean and feels as innocent as we stereotype that time period to be.
