My congradualtions to this new author. I enloyed the author's description of Tommy's early years and his problems with growing up. Instead of feeling sorry for him I felt I was pulling for Tommy. I just knew someone like him would find a way to overcome adversity and always seek out opportunties. Not being an avid sports reader myself, I felt I was sitting on the bench waiting for Tommy to come up with the answers. He never gave up on his team and always was looking out for his girls welfare. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I recommend anyone that may be feeling down or a little stressed should take an afternoon and read a book like "Courting Girls". It's a short book but leaves you feeling good about life. The reader can't help but feel as Tommy did, "where there is a will there is a way". I plan to read it again before I find a special place in my library for it. I'd like to know if the author has another book coming out in the near future and where I can find it? Good job!

This book has the capabilities of transporting you back in time. The information regarding six on six girls basketball is well researched and very interesting. Although, I have never had a sports background I was able to understand the rules of the game, making the story more interesting. You felt like you were there cheering the girls on. The trials that the team goes through just to get time to practice or to make it to the games is so real, mud roads, bad weather, old buses (maybe they weren't that old just not as luxurious as today). They didn't have all the luxuries of todays athletes. The story moves along swiftly, I didn't put the book down till I finished reading the whole story. The details of growing up in rural Iowa during the early twentieth century are great, it reminded me of a time when my grandparents would tell stories about how good you got it now. I hope that this author continues to write additional stories, I am sure that they will be equally as good.

Did you play 6 on 6 girls basketball in school or PE class? If you did, this book will bring back the memories of a game that girls learned to love. Tommy was a dedicated coach to a team of girls that had to "find ways" to get their practice time in since the boys had most of the court time. He was ever present for his girls in all ways they needed him. Not only does the book show the advances in girls basketball, it also shows you how life was in the Midwest at that time. Iowa is a very agricultural state and you see that through this book as well. His personal family was a great part of his basketball days, Barbara being a cheerleader as a little girl. I have the pleasure of knowing this co-author and know what a delight it was for her to write this book with her father. Pick it up and read it tonight. Does not take long, but certainly brings back memories to those of us that played the sport. A little unique book and a job well done within its pages.
