I give this book 5 out of 5 starts. I recommend this book to anyone that is a basketball fall, a fan of mysteries, or someone who likes some comedy I do recommend this to some adults that are interested in sports or sports writers, but I donít recommend this to all adults.. This book is written from preteens - teenagers. It has many famous sports writers or TV hosts as characters such as Dick Vitale.
