Throughout the universe, there's one sport that everyone's a fan of: BASH! A brutal, high-octane version of basketball: its players are rockstars, legends, gods, and for young Rudy, a poor kid from Nevilia, his only dream is to be one of them. His talent might just make it happen, but can he make it while threats come from every corner of the galaxy? Rudy's got talent, but talent is nothing without practice and so he sets out to become the best BASH player in the galaxy, always training, always reaching for just one more dunk. And while Rudy is starting to get noticed by the teams and the talent scouts, other, more sinister forces have started to creep out from the shadows, jealous of this rising young star.

    Gr 7 Up—In the future, people universe-wide revere "the BASH," a hyperaggressive, basketball-like sport. Armor-clad BASH professionals play on courts that can change mid-game from standard to blazing desert to glacial, often turning the already challenging game deadly. Rudy is an exceptionally talented player in a BASH street league. He hopes to get noticed by recruiters and become a professional, escaping his life of poverty. This angers Rudy's mother, who blames the game for his father Atlas's disappearance 12 years earlier. During a pickup game, Rudy meets someone from Atlas's past. Rudy learns about Atlas's pro career and the surprising source of his talent—but Rudy has no idea what that is going to mean for him. This science-fiction sports story is written by NBA star Gobert and reflects his basketball knowledge, especially the role sports play in the lives of people with limited opportunities. The narrative is interesting, though somewhat choppy, and the characters are underdeveloped. The story has more set up than action, but it's still an exciting read. The art is the strongest element of the book. It excels at showing the dynamic BASH games, the physicality and emotion of the characters, as well as Rudy's depressed surroundings. Rudy has brown skin; other characters have a range of skin tones but no specific ethnicity. VERDICT Despite being somewhat bumpy, this futuristic basketball story is elevated by the art and will likely engage science fiction and sports fans.—Carla Riemer
