Overview

March Madness is in full swing, and there are only four teams let in the NCAA basketball championship. The heavily favored Michigan Spartans and the underdog Troy Trojans meet in the first game in the seminfinals, and it’s there that the fates of Malcolm, Roko, Crispin, and M.J. intertwine. As the last moments tick down on the game clock, you’ll learn how each player went from being a kid who loves to shoot hoops to a powerful force in one of the most important games of the year. Which team will leave the Superdome victorious? In the end it will come down to who has the most skill, the most drive, and the most heart.

Praise

Praise for The Final Four by Paul Volponi:

"Volponi, a multiple award-winning author, keeps the tension high from the first to last page … The Final Four is definitely a winner." —VOYA, starred review

"A triple-overtime game keeps readers on the edge of their seats, but nerve-wracking as the action on the floor may be, the baggage that the players bring to the game is equally fraught." —BCCB, starred review

"With exciting game action … this gritty, realistic, and riveting novel deserves the wide audience it will no doubt attract." —School Library Journal, starred review

"Volponi nails it when it counts in this dynamic story." —Booklist, starred review

"Volponi’s latest combines in-the-moment action, basketball history and the points of view of four college ballplayers with very different lives … No story or character is simple." —Kirkus Reviews
