Tween Tuesday Review: Slam Dunk

Lists of 10 covering a variety of things in basketball from skills to shoes to hairstyles.

The Good:
Lots of great pictures
Interesting List Topics: Clutch players, sixth man, fans, triple-double threats, game winning shots, and much more. 
Lots of Facts and Stats within the lists
Easy to pick up and put down because of the format

The Bad:
There's ONE two list that features WNBA players and one woman's mentioned in a list of basketball families. But that's it.
I know the WNBA is no where near as popular as the NBA, but still I felt like more women should have been included.

Overall: A great book that with have basketball fans checking out and arguing over the lists. Perfect for conversation starters. Perfect for fans of the game. Great for reluctant readers. I think this one will circulate like hotcakes in a library
