The Sixth Man


The Sixth Man
By John Feinstein
Recommended by Kelley

Although I don’t normally review a second book in a series – this one has merit. A YA sports book that is based around basketball season (book one was football and three will be baseball) and the continued character of Alex Myers. Timely in its discussion of dealing with a teammate on the varsity basketball team that comes out regarding his sexuality. A very well thought out story-line that truly demonstrates that today’s youth are often more challenged by the adult perception and actions than the situation itself. Regardless of your personal stance, this book leaves with you a feeling of hope for the next generation.
