The Dream Ten: Where's Tony Book Review (Tomoson)

I received The Dream Ten: Where's Tony?: Young Adult Sport Games Fiction (Friendship, Self-Esteem & Motivation Collection Book 2), in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The book was written by A.D. Erving. The book was illustrated by Guy Morad

The book is the second in the Dream Team Series. This book occurs 6 months after the first book. The basketball team has made it to the semi-finals of the Lower NYC All Star Winter Classic. Tony was recruited to play for a team in New York but he doesn't show up for practice--both in NY and for the Dream 10. Where is Tony?

The book starts out with a disclaimer from the team's captain, Larry, saying the story is not for the faint of heart. The disclaimer made me think of all the basketball movies from the 90s such as Above the Rim, where I think someone got shot or White Men Can't Jump, where the cast was trying to hustle some cash and participate in a basketball tournament.

Tony Baez was born in America, but his parents are of Spanish/Latin origin. They came to America from the Dominican Republic, working odd jobs to support their family. He has been quiet lately and Larry, the captain, noticed.

The Dream Ten has a tournament coming up against the Cobras on the Cobra's court.

The book gained momentum in chapter 8 when Tony did not show up for practice for the New York Panthers. No one knows where he is at. Tony is not answering his phone, then the phone is disconnected. The Dream Ten seeks to find their missing teammate.

The book chapters are short. I was impressed with the author's writing style.

You can purchase the book on Amazon in Kindle format. The book does contain cuss words.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
