Swish! Teen Basketball Books

The game of basketball is going full force for fans, whether you follow high school, college or the NBA. Earlier this year a great new book was released by Paul Volponi, The Final Four. Volponi follows four players trying to win a March Madness tournament game between the touted Michigan squad and the underdog Troy Titans. You find out how each player became a college star along with exciting play-by-play action.

Similar fiction on basketball includes Walter Dean Myers’ Game and Matt de la Peña’s Ball Don’t Lie, where you learn why their characters are in love with the game.

If you are more into mysteries or crave books about college basketball, national sportswriter John Feinstein’s sports mysteries include Last Shot. Two eighth-grade reporters win a contest that allows them to cover the Final Four, where they discover that the game might be rigged.

And for manga and graphic novel fans there’s Slam Dunk, a furious comic series from Japan featuring two rival basketball players.
