What happens when a school cuts its basketball team? The kids who live in the Alton Heights housing complex need to come up with a plan fast. That’s how the Alton Heights All-Stars team is born. They may not have matching jerseys, a coach, or even a regular court to practice on, but they make up for it with perseverance and heart. Cam, Jasmine, Brianna, Tyler, and Markus prove to everyone that they’re not just playing around; they’re out to be all-stars.
“Simple vocabulary and sentence structure, combined with frequent inset illustrations and short chapters, make this a classic high/low transitional chapter book for older readers.” —Booklist (On Alton Heights All-Stars)
