Example text

Though the main characters in the story are white, some nonwhite characters appear in minor roles. Matt Christopher’s Soccer Duel (2000) is about two junior high soccer players and is one of a handful of recent novels about a sport that has largely been ignored in sports literature. Finally, Brooks’s Throwing Smoke (2001) embodies all of the changes that have taken place in recent game novels. It is a very smart story of a coed baseball team of middle school students from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.

The anthology’s introduction makes clear that these stories, though they are certain to appeal to teenagers, are not of the juvenile sports fiction tradition. The book contains stories that feature ”games of youth and games of age, games of love and games of hate, games of discovery, and games of disillusion. They are games in which games of every kind play a vital part, but their victories and defeats go far beyond numbers on a scoreboard” (Schulman viii). None of the stories in this collection panders to a reader’s desire for mere game action; instead they use sports as a stage for stories about more important issues.

Coaches are among the most frequent adult characters, and they are portrayed as kindly and benign mentors who dispense wise advice at key moments. The plots typically involved some subterfuge in the locker room or on the playing field that threatened the reputation or well-being of the athlete/hero or the school. Naturally the novel’s hero played an essential role in resolving the conflict through his courage, honesty, and superior athletic skill. These kinds of young adult sports novels have virtually disappeared, and readers like Cantwell miss them: A handful of good writers of boys’ books still write about baseball, but their product is of a different sort.
