In DOUBLE OVERTIME, written by Dana Lotito, high school student Miles Anderson is trying to figure out his life. As the new kid in school, Miles experiences several obstacles in life: he can’t get the girl he is interested in to date him and he also has way too many unresolved issues with his older brother, Adam. On top of all that, he feels pressured to uphold the family legacy: excelling at basketball. Miles needs to organize his life, and fast, before things get even worse.

In the book there are references to basketball skills and many basketball games are played. However, you don’t have to be a basketball player or fan to enjoy this book. What I liked most about this book was its descriptive language and the plot. Anyone that enjoys reading realistic fiction with touches of humor will like DOUBLE OVERTIME.

Warning: There is romance and some heavy swearing in some parts of this book. There are also instances of underage drinking.
