One of the books I read this summer is called Game Face by Sylvia Gunnery which takes place in a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada. The main character’s names are Jay and Colin who used to be good friends and now they are fighting over the position of team captain on the Rockets basketball team. Jay was elected by his team to be the team captain.
Colin is a better basketball player than Jay but Jay has a better attitude. Jay does not focus on himself as a team captain he focuses on what is happening to his team. Jay was picked by his team for the job of team captain because he is a leader. An example of his leadership is when Jay decides to see if the coach will let Colin be co-captain, because Colin had liked the idea of being co-captain and maybe he might have a better attitude if he is co-captain.
I am not really a sports book kinda guy but this one, I have to say, was good. It was a quick read, not hard. The book would pull me in I just wanted to read it for longer amounts of time. I would recommend this book to people who like basketball and good books. I would rate this book 4½.
