BASKETBALL BROTHER is a fast-paced basketball book for middle grade readers. Like all Bo Rush books, BASKETBALL BROTHER uses sports to celebrate diversity and inclusion, grapple with important life lessons, and reaffirm important values like courage, determination, and friendship. Eleven-year-old Leo Looper is recovering from knee surgery and doesn't know if he will ever be able to play basketball again. To make matters worse, he has to move to a new school in the middle of the year. That's never easy, especially when you have to hide the fact that you can't read. But Leo overcomes those obstacles, reaching new heights by slam dunking on the school bully and making an unexpected best friend -- the girl who becomes his teammate and reading tutor. The reading level for BASKETBALL BROTHER is in the third through sixthth grade range. Struggling readers who love playing sports will be able to connect with BASKETBALL BROTHER on a personal level. Proficient readers will reinforce their skills while enjoying the sports action and youthful issues presented in the text.
