She, and everybody else including the coach, notices she is starting to play better because she has overcome her shyness. She immediately thinks it is the shoes that is helping her, like they have magical powers. She is starting to get noticed by her two crushes, Brett and Anthony, and she starts to get a little more confidence in herself. For every game she wears the red high tops and she always gets better each time. She still wonders who sent her the shoes and if they actually do have magical powers that are making her better. When her two crushes start talking to her she is glad that she has the shoes but eventually she becomes obsessed with them and it breaks up her friendship with her best friend, Ethyl.
Ethyl also plays on the basketball team and they bicker back and forth on the court. Kelly is upset that her friendship is going bad and so she tries to fix it by talking to Ethyl. Ethyl and her agree to stay best friends until they start to argue again. Kelly thinks it is defiantly the shoes this time so she decides not to wear them at the last game.
Everybody is upset that she is not wearing the red high tops but Kelly does not care. After a while in the game Kelly realizes she cannot play without her high tops so she sends her father to get them. When he arrives back the coach tells her she does not need them and Kelly realizes she is right. She goes into the school hallway and tells the custodian to take them away and burn them.
At this time Ethyl comes out and admits she put the shoes in Kelly's locker and they do have special powers. She explains she got a chemist to perforce some experiment on the shoes and it worked. Kelly is relieved she finally found out about the shoes. The two make up and finish the game for a big win. Fighting with your friends and having crushes is something every kid goes through at one point. Also, it is a sports book so it is great for a kid who is into sports, like basketball. Although I will have to say this book is more geared to girls because the main character is a girl.
The front cover looks like it has been painted with some computer effects as well. With the big basketball n the front and the girl running it is easy to tell the book is about basketball for girls. I think the front cover will catch young girls attention especially if they love sports. The colors are also bright and it is very alluring for a young reader.
I have found that the author, Matt Christopher, writes the number 1 sports series for kids.
I like his books because at first I thought they were more geared toward boys but I found one that a girl can read and I am sure there are more. These books are great for young readers who love sports. They all have a little mystery in them and it will keep kids reading. Mar 30, lindsey rated it it was amazing.

In , Matt Christopher talked about being a children's book author. I was selling magazines such as the Saturday Evening Post, Country Gentleman, and Liberty, and I would read the stories, particularly the adventure and mystery stories, and think how wonderful it would be to be able to write stories and make a living at it. I also read detective, horror, aviation, and sports stories and decided I would try writing them myself. After writing and selling children's sports stories to magazines, I decided to write a baseball book for children.
I spoke about my idea to the branch librarian. She was immediately interested and told me that they needed sports stories badly. I submitted it to Little, Brown, and the book was published in I'm sure that playing sandlot baseball and then semiprofessional baseball with a Class C club in the Canadian-American League influenced my writing. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher.
For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
