This is book number 5 in the Fred Bowen Sports Story Series series.


Chris is tired of being a benchwarmer.

He loves basketball and wants nothing more than to play on the court with his team. So, hoping to get more playing time, he asks his friend Greta, the high-scoring star of the girls' team, for help with his shooting skills.

But surprisingly, it's Greta's mom—a former basketball player who never even scored a basket—who helps change Chris's strategy. Can he finally become a success on the court?

This action-packed story shows how determination, strategy, and innovation can change the way you play. Check out the afterword for more stories of real-life basketball players.
