Review: Lupica's series of well-executed, fast-paced sports novels will have great appeal to middle-graders who gravitate to sports books. In Hot Hand, 10-year-old Billy and his siblings are having trouble adjusting to their parents separation. Their dad happens to be Billy's hot-headed basketball coach and pays little attention to Billy's younger brother Ben's talent as a piano player. It seems that Billy is the only one to notice how badly things are unraveling and he has an important championship game himself to concentrate on.
