I think that Fast Break by Mike Lupica is a very fascinating book. Jayson the main character is a great teammate, an aggressive player, and has to persevere through hard times. This book is very suspenseful and shows how lucky some of us are.
This story takes place in North Carolina. He starts off living on his own trying to not get picked up by Child Protective Services but blows his cover. So he gets taken to a nicer part of town with a foster family. Now trying to make the basketball playoffs comes a challenge with his new team.
My reason is that he is a great teammate. One way to show this is, “He could have kept it for an easy bucket but passed instead,’’ pg 88. This shows he is a great teammate because he could have kept it but decided to pass. Another piece of evidence is, “ With fists flying through the air Jayson tries an attempt at stopping it,” This shows he is a good teammate because he tried to stop a fight to save his friends. And that is two reasons why he is a good teammate.
