    If you want to read a book about baseball humor with hilarious plot twists, then the book Two Hot Dogs With Everything by Paul Haven is for you. This book is about a fan of the baseball team called the Sluggers, named Danny Gurkin. The Sluggers are a team who haven’t won the World Series for 108 years, and their first manager, Manchester Boddlebrooks is dead (and I’m not spoiling why). Danny tries to do things to increase the team’s luck like stepping over a crack in the sidewalk or closing windows, but to no avail. Also, like real life, there is a rivalry between two teams, the Tornadoes and the Sluggers. Paul Haven has written a story that will make you laugh and rethink all the things that you thought gave luck in baseball! This humorous fiction book is very funny, and I think a good pick for baseball fans looking for a story that keeps you guessing.

    I recently finished Athlete VS. Mathlete by W.C. Mack. This book follows the two stories of fraternal twins Owen and Russell Evans. Owen has always been the family’s star athlete, while Russell would rather focus on his Masters of the Mind competitions. However, when the new coach for the basketball team arrives he puts Russell on the team. Eventually, it shows that Russell is a pro at basketball. Meanwhile, a new student threatens Russell’s position as leader of his Masters of the Mind team. Russell is going to need some help, luckily the perfect person lives just down the hall. Can Russell keep his rightful place, and can this family have two athletes? Read the book to find out.

    If you like action then No Summit out of Sight by Jordan Romero would be good for you. I liked it because it has a lot of action and the character is my age. Anyone can read this nonfiction book. It’s about a boy named Jordan who is 9 years old and wants to climb the seven summits, but there is a problem he has to be 10 to climb the first mountain. So when he turned 10 he climbed his first mountain. The mountain was Kilimanjaro. Then he adventures to new places and more mountains and never gives up. If you want to find if he succeeds then read the book, is great.

    I recently read an amazing book called The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen. It’s about a girl who loves to run. Running is pretty much her life until she and a few friends get in a car accident after a track meet. One girl dies, one is unharmed and she is sent to the hospital to get her leg amputated. Once her leg is removed she can’t run any more and she feels like her life is over. It is written in free verse so it is quick to read but it is full of love and pain and you can’t help but feel sorry for her. I think both girls and boys would enjoy this book. I have had many other people say it is amazing and that they felt like they were the main character. I hope you all enjoy this wonderful book.

    The Crossover is by Kwame Alexander about two brothers who are the kings on the basketball court who play on the same team. When Jordan gets a girlfriend Josh gets jealous. Things begin to change. It’s mostly about when Jordan gets a girl friend that happens to be the new girl in school the brotherhood bond is no more than just 2 people that met, and when a tragic accident happened it tears their bond apart! In this book it shows us basketball and brotherhood intends to show Josh and Jordan that life is not about winning! I recommend this book for girls and boys who at least need to be 10 and older. If you like hip hop then I think you would like this book because it is written in a similar way!

    This quarter I read the book The Crossover by Kwame Alexander. I would recommend this book to kids fourth grade and up because there is death and a little violence in it and to boys who like basketball and drama. It is about twin brothers who both love basketball and they play on the same team for their school and their dad played in the NBA his name is Chuck Bell but they call him Da Man. Their mom is the vice principal at their school but as they get older they start to drift apart. It was a really interesting book and I loved the book.
