Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Altitude, Jerome said, answering the confused looks on our faces, is how high you fly. You need to have a good attitude if you want to fly high. You have to believe.

When Nick and Kia are invited to former Toronto Raptor Jerome Junk Yard Dog Williams' basketball camp in Washington, DC, they quickly discover that this is no ordinary summer hoop camp. This is a basketball boot camp that focuses on discipline and hard work. Jerome and Johnnie's father, Sergeant Push-up to the campers, is the no-nonsense camp director. When scrimmages begin, Nick and Kia fall victim to the antics of their teammate Jamal, a talented but troubled player who tries to win games on his own. Only after some hard lessons-and some tough losses-do the three youngsters learn that it takes everyone on the team to accomplish real success.

For the ninth installment of this best-selling series Eric Walters has teamed up with retired NBA star Jerome Williams and his brother Johnnie Williams III to write another exciting chapter in the lives of Nick and Kia. Although Boot Camp is fiction, there is a real JYD Basketball Boot Camp in Washington each summer. The Williams' royalties will go to support the JYD Project, which offers a variety of community outreach programs for youth in Canada and the United States. Eric Walters is the author of more than forty books for children and young adults and a much sought-after classroom presenter.

Synopsis:

Nick and Kia learn that teamwork can be more important than talent.
