Swish! Panting hard as they run down the court, the team needs to score! They don't want the ball to get stolen so they keep passing it. All of a sudden, one boy is wide open so he takes the shot. To find out what happens next, you'll have to read the book Hoops. Hoops is an excellent book and it uses great word choice. Similes such as "like tides going in, going out," and metaphors help the book flow together as if it were actually happening. The book has a good rhythm to it, making it even more enjoyable. An interesting quote that I chose from the book was "hoops, the game, feel it." This quote tells about the game of basketball. This book's main point would have to be that if you try your hardest, you will succeed. If you like basketball you will especially like this book. On the other hand, if you're just looking for a great story to read, Hoops is your solution.
