Mason Dixon: Basketball Disasters

By: Claudia Mills
illustrated by: Guy Francis

BOOK TALK

My name is Mason and I do NOT want to play basketball.  But once again, I listen to my best friend Brody, and to make him happy, I let him convince me to join the team.  Yeah right!  Is the fun supposed to start before or after my dad agrees to coach the team--something he has never done in his life?  Or maybe the fun will start when Dunk, the class bully, harasses me with threats about wiping up the floor with my face? I know better than to listen to Brody, but this time he really got me in a mess.  My friend Nora and some of the members of her old basketball team join the Bulldogs and now our team is co-ed.  Boy does that intensify the harassment from Dunk and his team.  I know life will return to normal after basketball, but it can’t come soon enough for me.
