Imagine you are an 8th grader
and have entered a writing contest. Now imagine you receive a letter
informing you that you have won! Now, imagine that the prize is a
trip to the Final Four college basketball playoffs with full journalist
credentials! You will be able to meet the players and the coaches.
You'll be able to attend the practices and the games. You'll have
seat right up close to the court. What a great prize! And for
Steven Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson, it is a dream come true.
What the two don't anticipate is overhearing a conversation in the hall
way. A conversation about fixing the final outcome!
Stevie Thomas, an 8th grade
sports fanatic and exceptional writer, has just won a national writing
contest. The prize is a trip to the Superdome in New Orleans to cover
the college Final 4 Basketball Championship. There he meets the other
contest winner, Susan Carol Anderson. With all-access passes, they
are excited to meet the players and coaches and work beside some of the
most famous sports journalists.
Chip Graber is the star player
for Minnesota State University. He is destined to be a top draft
pick for the NBA. But everything is threatened when Stevie and Susan
Carol overhear a man tell Chip to throw the game and make sure MSU looses
the championship. Stevie and Susan Carol come up with a plan, but
who will be put in danger? And who will win the NCAA Championship?

If you like sports books then
last shot is for you. The book is about a kid named Steven who loves to
Wright about sports and sports center. Steven reads in a news article that
there is a weighting contest and the winner gets 2 final four tickets to
the final four game with free airfare and free nights at a hotel were all
the coaches stay. Steven and one other girl win the contest so they go
to the final four together. They get to Wright a story about the final
four and it goes in the news paper. When they got there they got to interview
a player from Duce. And later on that day they were talking about how the
player was going to blow the game for Duke. They had to go up to his hotel
room and talk to him and tell him why he shouldn't do that. They found
out who was telling the player to blow the game and he fired from the manager
spot. This book is a great book for all people or if you just like basketball.
