Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

It was going to be the best year of my life. This year we'd go to State and win it all. That's all I thought about. In March, I was going to be cutting down the net and holding a trophy in the air. Sixteen-year-old All-State, Janey Holmes is devastated, her dream shattered. Her old school suddenly closes over the summer and she finds herself at a new school, on a basketball team that hasn't won a game in over three years. As the Riverside Ravens climb from a hopeless start to challenge the best teams in the District, Janey learns what happens when her passion for the game and loyalty to her team is threatened by her explosive temper and the free-fall desires of first love.

Janey Holmes' passion for the game should be enough to draw every basketball aficionado - young or old - to this book. Janey is smart, witty and talented and needs all of these attributes as she maneuvers the peaks and valleys of adolescence and discoveries of first love. The real life drama of this group of girls struggling to come together and Beck's descriptions of plays and games are a treat. On top of that, P.V. Beck brings her extensive knowledge of basketball, and a fluid writing style to this story of the team that manages to beat the odds. This is a young adult novel that I will purchase for all the young girls and boys in my life who are facing similar struggles along the way to becoming adults. And, by the way, I'd highly recommend it to my own group of friends as well. We all need occasional reminders of what is possible.

Sweet Turnaround J is a Young Adult girls' sports novel---specifically, high school basketball. It is not a lesbian novel. One of many themes that runs through this novel--besides totally intense basketball--is about being gay. Read it. It's awesome.
