Second String Center

Release Date: September 6, 2007

Dunk comes back for another basketball season! “Cornell “Dunk” Duncan and his team from Dunk Under Pressure return for another in the Winning Season series. They are seventh-graders now. Dunk hopes for a place on the team, and gets his wish as back-up center. He might be only second string, but he gets to play. Jared, first-string center, is enduring the first stages of his parents’ divorce, and it interferes with his play and makes him late to games and practice. Jared confides in Dunk, and Dunk is “there” for him. After much practice and a false start, all ends well. For reluctant readers and sports fans, this, like the rest of the series, is a strong choice.” — Kirkus Reviews
