Stepping Up by Mark Fink

Fink, Mark Stepping Up, 214 pgs. WestSide Books, 2009. Language - PG (14 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Ernie is only an average guy that has a stutter problem. His only friend is Mike and they have been best buds since he moved in when they were six. Every summer they take turns choosing summer camps that they'll go to together and this year Mike chooses a basketball camp. Ernie is okay at basketball, buy he's not sure about this plan, but he goes along anyway. What never crossed either of their minds was that this camp would change both of their lives forever. I'm not one for sports, buy I couldn't put this book down to save my life. It had great characters and an outstanding story line. I really enjoyed the fact that you get to read about what happens after camp and not just what went on during camp. MS, HS - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: CCH
