“David H. Hendrickson has written a sequel worthy of his spectacular novel, Offside. Offensive Foul is filled with heart.”
—Leslie Claire Walker
author of The Faery Chronicles
“Rabbit Labelle is back in David H. Hendrickson’s Offensive Foul, and everything’s cranked up a notch. Tougher family issues. Racism bubbling over. And a powerful first love caught in the middle. Love this saga!”
author of Chasing the Minotaur
“Hendrickson has scored again. Offensive Foul is another great book full of sports excitement and racial conflict. Rabbit Labelle’s speed and agility shine on the basketball court, but he risks losing his place on the team when he stands up for what’s right. Rabbit is just as fast to put everything on the line for his friends as he is with the basketball. I enjoyed this book immensely.”
author of Dragonbound: Blue Dragon
“High school football star Rabbit Labelle returns in a page-turner with plenty of food for thought. Racial conflict, family discord, and a girlfriend. Offensive Foul has all that, and, of course, basketball. David H. Hendrickson sinks a three-pointer at the buzzer with this winning addition to Offside. Don’t miss it.”
—Dory Crowe, author of Dark Secrets
