Personal Review: The Outside Shot by Walter Dean Myers
The Outside Shot is the story of Lonnie Jackson's journey through his
freshman year in college. He is from Harlem and is attending the school on
a basketball scholarship. As soon as he arrives at the school trouble starts.
He thought because he was on scholarship he automatically was on the
team. He was wrong about this because he still had to try out. At the
college, he meets a girl named Sherry, who is there on a track scholarship.
He is interested in her and they have an off-and-on relationship. He also
develops a friendship for a boy named Eddie who is at the hospital he
works. Eddie is thought to be autistic and Lonnie plays with him in the gym
at the hospital. The relationship starts off slow but gets better. While he is
at a pick-up game he meets a man everybody calls the "Fat Man". The Fat
Man gets him in a situation where the college says Lonnie is involved in
the gambling of there games. He is suspended from the team. During this
time he starts to drink a lot and does not attend any of his classes. Sherry
is there to comfort him but he does not seem to want to be comforted.
This author is my favorite author. His writing style is very realistic. I am
also a fan of basketball so this book kept me interested from beginning to
end. This is definitely a five star book. Almost any male athlete will love
