A fast-paced book about two girls' basketball teams fighting for the championship.

"The Cardinals and Bluejays are in the final game of the championship. The tension builds as the clock ticks away. The score is tied at 44/44 with one second left . . . who will win the game?"

New interest in women's basketball, including the 1996 Olympic team and the heavily watched 1996 NCAA women's championship, makes Swish! an exciting addition to the list. Bill Martin, Jr. and Michael Sampson have created an action-packed text filled with suspense. Illustrations by Michael Chesworth put the reader on the court as these tough players battle it out.
