In Foul Shot, the Cougars haven’t won a game in years, but the team sees a way to break its losing streak. There’s a tall Asian guy named Frank who can run, play and sink baskets. Soon Frank turns the Cougars into a dream team – but it turns out that height and talent can’t make up for bad sportsmanship.

“This novel will really interest those challenged readers who like sports as well as stories that are interesting, but not too difficult to read. The illustrations will help them identify even more with the characters and the developing plot. Along with the teachers guide, Foul Shot is a well-recommended addition to any classroom or resource centre.” – Resource Links Review
