The Assist by Neil Swidey

the assist was a really good book and it really motivated me to try hard in all I do. I am fortunate I do not live in a place like these kids grew up in. It is a story about high school boys that deal with their problems on the court and off the court in their ghetto neighborhoods.

  1. Before Neil Swidey wrote this book, he wrote a series of articles for the Boston Globe Magazine. I was totally wrapped up in the story. Thanks for recommending this book — I will try to get it for the library next year.

    I really liked this book as well. It showed that through all the hard times, you can still succeed. It really made me realize how hard things can get, and how easy I really have it.

    I liked this book also. I thought it was good and the obsticles they had to overcome were realistic.
