“I loved Bob Krech’s book because he knows basketball; players or fans of the sport will enjoy the on-court action throughout. REBOUND is one of the few basketball books I would read again.”

    Walter Dean Myers, Critically acclaimed Author of Monster, Patrol, Riot and many other award-winning titles

“The author clearly knows the world of high school basketball. Sure to be a slam-dunk success with players and fans alike.”

    Kirkus Reviews

“Krech keeps it hones as he successfully shows the many shades of gray that keep racism from being a truly black-and-white issue.”



    Children’s Literature

“Will make for a spirited discussion among teen readers.”


The author “back in the day.” Notice the high white Converse with black socks no less!
