Editorial Reviews

Praise for Mike Lupica's novels:"Lupica is the greatest sports writer for middle school readers."--VOYA on True Legend"Lupica has the knowledge of the game and the lean prose to make a taut, realistic story not just about the game but about heart, character, and family."--Kirkus Reviews on Travel Team* "The dialogue crackles, and the rich cast of supporting characters nearly steals the show. Top-notch entertainment in the Carl Hiaasen mold."--Booklist, starred review of Heat"Lupica gives his readers a behind-the-scenes look at major league sports. In this novel, he adds genuine insights into family dynamics."--Booklist on The Batboy"Lupica will win a Pulitzer for his sportswriting one day (he should have won it already)." --The New York Times on Heat
