This week’s Book of the Week selection is Pick-Up Game, edited by Marc Aronson. I know what you’re thinking: most novels have an author, not an editor, right? Well, this novel has a unique format – it’s actually nine linked short stories by some of the very best young adult writers around.
Pick-Up Game takes place during one single, steaming hot July day at the New York City’s West 4th Street Court, also known as The Cage. Hotshot players mingle with wannabes, professional team scouts, and admiring fans from the neighborhood. Find out how it all goes down in this fast-paced novel in short stories that pick up where the last one ends. This novel in stories is a slam dunk!
