Fourteenth Book Done: Athlete Vs. Mathlete

I finished reading my fourteenth Iowa Children's Choice Award nominee: Athlete Vs. Mathlete by W. C. Mack.

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Description: In this book twins, Russ and Owen Evans are as different as night and day or so they think. Russ is the mathlete and Owen is the athlete. This belief is challenged when the new basketball coach insists that Russ, the mathlete, try out for the basketball team and he makes it.

This is a fun read, that will remind you that you can do and be more then you think you can!
