In Hoop Queen, Kylie Jean joins a basketball team and struggles with learning to dribble and shoot free throws. Her grandfather, the coach of the team is patient and encouraging. Kylie Jean is determined to win a free throw contest and the title Little Dribbler Queen. In order to win she needs to not only have a lot of free throws go in the basket but she also needs to get donation pledeges. She goes after pledges and practices shot after shot.
As stated in my review of Kylie Jean : Drama Queen (for review click here) Kylie Jean is a welcome addition to easy chapter books for girls. Once again the pictures add a cute dimension to the story. Kylie Jean is a likeable character as are her friends and family. Recommended for fans of Junie. B., Judy Moody, and girls looking for a sports story. These two titles in addition to more are being published January 1, 2011 by Capstone. Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Netgalley. Available in hardcover and paperback.
