In this book, there's a boy who wants to be like Michael Jordan. At first the book talks about Michael Jordan, but as soon as the book gets closer to the end, it talks about the kid and that he wants to use Michael Jordan's technique when he plays. The kid wants to be a basketball player like him, and Michael is a role model to the kid. The book talks about Michael Jordan loving the game and the kid loves the game also. At the end, the book talks about Michael Jordan and that the game is his life. On the first page, it talks about his life and when he first saw a ball. If you like our summary, read the book and learn the book and enjoy the book.

The reason why we like this book is because it inspired us to never give up on our dreams. The book is a role model to us. We like this book because you can learn alot because it tells you to always do your best, and when Michael Jordan was really sick he still played and never gave up. Michael Jordan still plays basketball and he still does not give up on his basketball career and he will never give up. The part Stefanos and Jordan really like in this book is when Michael Jordan catches the ball and dunks the ball because it's cool and it's like a soaring eagle.

We recommend this book to people who want to be a basketball player because it is about a dream. The other people who like basketball but don't want to be a basketball player and just like the game, will also like this book. If you like this review, read the book and enjoy it. We don't recommend this to people who don't like basketball.
