A Whole New Ballgame by Phil Bildner

In the book, A Whole New Ballgame by Phil Bildner, two kids, Rip and Red who are best friends start a new school year.  Fifth Grade!  They are not only looking forward to a new school year, but a chance to play for the basketball team. They are expecting their homeroom teacher to be Mrs. Hamburger, but it is some guy named Mr. Avecedo.  He is covered in cool tattoos and a bunch of nose rings.  When they get to the gym for tryouts, they realize who their basketball coach is - Read more to find out who the coach is.   
I liked a lot of things about the book.  But one of the reasons I really liked the book was that I really like basketball and the book is mainly about two kids loving the sport of basketball.  Also another thing I really liked was how the story sort of had unexpected middles and an unexpected ending. If you know me, you wouldn’t be surprised that I picked this book.

    1. Thank you Athleticgirl08! I think my favorite character would be Rip. Or as some people call him Iverson.


  2. This sounds like a great book. Would you recommend this?


  3. I haven't read this book but from your description it sounds very interesting since I am very active. If you were a character in this story who would you be and why?
