Junior Library Guild Selection
It's D-Bow's senior year, his A-Game is ready, big-time colleges are taking notice, and he's dreaming big. What's really rattling D-Bow is the cocky white guy, Daryl Gibson, angling for his job at point. It's time for D-Bow to man up, and bring home a win for Marion High, his inner-city school in Indianapolis that’s never had a state championship.

Senior Year. Glory time! But nothing’s easy. Girls. Family. The rehabbed knee. And there’s this white guy. S’up with that?

D-Bow’s game has it all, and colleges are taking notice. But he’s still rehabbing a knee injury and his job as Marion East point guard is under threat. Plus he’s got family drama. And girl trouble. Can he put it all together for his senior season? Or will he crash and burn like so many Marion East players before him?

Kevin Waltman lived in Indiana for 18 years, played high school hoops. He remains a huge basketball fan. QUICKS is his sixth YA novel. His first two, both from Scholastic, are Nowhere Fast (2002) and Learning the Game (2005). The remaining four are a part of the D-Bow’s High School Hoops series. Kevin is an instructor at the University of Alabama and lives in Coker with his wife Jessica, their daughter Calla, their baby boy Holling and their dog Henry
Midwest Book Review
Quicks is highly recommended, especially for young adults with a passion for basketball.
