Description

Eddie "Air" Ball wants to win the Finkle Foods poetry contest for a chance to sink a million-dollar free throw at halftime of the NBA finals. He knows he can make the shot, no problem. He's not so sure he can write a winning poem, though. Luckily, Eddie has the help of his best friend, Annie "Oakley" Stokely. Not only is Annie as good at shooting baskets as Eddie is, she also knows a lot about writing poems. Together, the two friends might have a chance to win the money that will help their parents move them out of their trailer park homes. With entertaining books like Babe and Me and The Kid Who Ran for President, Dan Gutman has become one of the most popular writers of young adult titles around. Johnny Heller's narration hits nothing but net in this engaging tale of basketball and life.

Professional reviews

"Eddie Ball lives in a trailer park in Louisiana with his widowed mother. His friend, Annie Stokely, lives there with her widowed father. Both mother and father work in the Finkle Foods factory, where most everyone in town works. A finkle is a candy delicacy, ok junk food, that was invented by a Mr. Finkle. The company needs to boost sales, so as a PR ploy, they sponsor a contest during NBA finals--sink a free throw and win a million dollars. Eddie, with the help of Annie and her father, wins the chance to make that throw. Johnny Heller is amazing in his ability to sound like an adolescent. Eddie is a character filled with juvenile anxiety and energy. Heller adroitly captures all these qualities in this wonderful satiric tale. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
