Outside Shot by Fred Bowen - ADVISABLE

Bowen, Fred Outside Shot,131 pages.  Peachtree Publishers, 2017, $7.  Language: G: (0 swears, 0 f words); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG.

Outside Shot is about Richie Mallon who is a cocky 8th grader who is the best shooter on the team. After getting into a shooting slump Richie must learn to do more than just shoot the ball. After grumpily learning to do other than scoring he starts to become a better all- around player and earns his spot as starter on the basketball team.

I think Outside Shot is a good quick read. I liked the book was so relatable to real life and you could connect to the book very easily. I think a lot of people should read this because it helps you realise that a lot of people seem perfect but actually make a lot of mistakes but hide them by practicing. I gave it a PG rating because it is kid friendly and does not graphically describe bad stuff.
