Midwest Book Review

The last novel in the "D-Bow's High School Hoops" series, Quicks continues the story of Derrick Bowen (a.k.a. "D-Bow"), during his senior year of high school. D-Bow intended to graduate and venture into the realm of college basketball, but his everyday life is full of complications. So- called "quicks" is something D-Bow lacks due to his rehabbed knee. A new point guard has transferred in (who happens to be white, and very, very good at the game). D-Bow's mother is pregnant (another mouth to feed in the family), and his girlfriend is jealous of D-Bow's love of basketball. A snazzy, slice-of-real-life sports story just in time for March Madness, Quicks is highly recommended, especially for young adults with a passion for basketball.
