The third installment of Mike Lupica’s best-selling Home Team series, Point Guard, hits bookstores on April 4. Each book in the series focuses on a sports team, its players and the interesting lives they lead.
The first two books, The Only Game and The Extra Yard, were about baseball and football, respectively.
Point Guard is about basketball, and follows Gus, a Dominican-American who’s constantly battling stereotypes of his heritage as he plays on the school team.
Like the rest of the series, Point Guard has plenty of thrilling hoops action, lots of emotion and plenty of memorable lessons about friendship.
