Brooks's fine first novel has a baskeball theme and plenty of action, but sport is merely the vehicle for delivering a. .But when I finished this book-for the 5th time, no less-I was blubbering like a baby

But when I finished this book-for the 5th time, no less-I was blubbering like a baby. Bruce Brooks is a wonderful author who tells stories that are technically fiction, but that would not be unlikely to happen. I highly recommend this book. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 19 years ago. I thought it was a really interesting book. One reason I like the book was because I love to play basketball like the kid in the book. I could never but the book down because it was so good.

He handled growing up without a father. He handled being the first black kid in school. And he sure can handle a basketball. Then Jerome meets bix Rivers - mysterious and moody, but a great athlete. So Jerome decides to teach bix his game. He can tell that bix has the talent. All he's got to do is learn the right move.

I really like the part when Jerome wins a lantern by playin The Moves Make the Man Bruce Brooks This book is about an African-American teenager named Jerome. Jerome meets this weird kid who is named Bix. Bix hates lies and so when Jerome teaches him to play basketball he has a ethical disagreements with the fakes.

My momma was the first person to notice, and the only person to notice, except for me, which I did after she tuned me in on it. I had no idea I was doing anything funny. Every day I slipped off with. my ball and every evening I came home, and in between, there were my moves. Moves were all I cared about last summer. I got them down, and I liked not just the fun of doing them, but having them too, like a little definition of Jerome. Reverse spin, triple pump, reverse dribble, stutter step with twist to the left, stutter into jumper, blind pass

A black boy and an emotionally troubled white boy in North Carolina form a precarious friendship.
  • Children are taught that they should tell the truth, no matter what. But is that how things really are? There's truth, and there's diplomacy. How much of truth is in diplomacy, and vice versa? What if a child isn't taught diplomacy? Does that make his world black and white?

    That seems to be the case for Bix Rivers, since he went from complete honesty to complete dishonesty after realizing that complete honesty doesn't always work. He doesn't understand that sometimes you have to fumble through the gray areas in order to get to where you're going. Jerome Foxworthy tries to explain it to him, but Bix just doesn't get it.

    I admire Bruce Brooks for bringing such intriguing questions to kids, and doing it through a fun and interesting story.

  • I liked the book. It has some swear words, I read the book aloud, and omitted some of the swear words. The book helped bring about some really good discussions on segregation, race, and friendship. We made mock apple pie at the end of the book and the students really like it.

  • Still using the book. Students are loving the unlikely friendship.

  • Gift for grandson and he loves basketball

  • I know the characters!

  • Very well written sad but detailed. Jerome is an amazing character that you will never get tired of. The end

  • Helpful tool. I use these books in the classroom frequently to teach the key elements of the books we read.

  • The book was not as pictured and I was looking for that specific edition but it did end up working for the class it was intended for.
