Publisher Description

The second audio book in New York Times bestselling author Mike Lupica's new middle-grade sports series!

Still living large off their incredible football championship just weeks before, Ben McBain and his crew must now prepare for basketball season. Ben is known as the best point guard throughout the league. And now that Shawn O'Brien has joined their team, they are a shoe-in to win it all. But there is a new kid in town, Chase Braggs, a point guard like Ben who seems to be better, stronger, and faster. Refusing to let his team down, Ben hits the courts hard to practice. Ben's rivalry with Chase seems to take the fun out of playing ball with his best friends.

Quotes

  • “Like its series starter, this Game Changers novel ripples with the excitement and sport realism that we have come to expect from its topflight sportswriter/author. Another Lupica slam-dunk sensation.”

    - Barnes & Noble, editorial review
  • “Like the first in the series, this volume provides an action-packed look at middle school sports as it explores issues of friendship, problem solving, and coming-of-age. Once again, the adults provide guidance in supportive roles, but the kid characters, especially Ben, demonstrate the ability of younger teens to learn from their experiences…Sports fans will eat it up.”
