The Final Four

By Paul Volponi. Viking, $16.99 (9780670012640). Gr. 9–12.


A triple-overtime NCAA game yields surprising personal drama as Volponi expertly weaves in backstories via four different player points of view. Nailbiting stuff for sports fans, though anyone who gives it a shot will come out a winner.
