    "Michael Hunter: Lady Rockets" “The Lady Rockets” is another well written story by author Michael D. Hunter. Mr. Hunter’s writes in a smooth, conversational writing style. You can almost imagine the author sitting next to you telling you this story. “The Lady Rockets” is the recap of the events involving a girls’ high school basketball team. It is a team of potential. How much potential is up to the players and coaches to figure out. The coaches have their hands full with a team of teenage girls. The gender or the sport the team plays does not matter all that much. Like on any HS team, you have different levels of maturity and commitment. The age, heart and skill level of the players are more deciding factors. You just hope that the combination of those factors in the players can build team unity and wins. “The Lady Rockets” takes you through the East Cheney Lady Rockets season. Coach Marco Harper gives the narrative of the season. Coach Harper is in his first year as an... More > Asst. Coach of the Lady Rockets varsity basketball team. He coached the lower girls’ basketball team previously and anticipates taking over the varsity team when the head coach, Monroe Jenkins, retires. He is also a school teacher, tennis coach and asst. baseball coach. He really loves coaching and his players (or at least the majority of them the majority of the time.) He can not stand laziness, slackers and people who don’t hustle. He gives 100% whether it is a practice or a game and he expects the same from the players. It is unfathomable to him to do it any other way. From a purely athletic point, he could deal with losses if the team hustles and are just not as talented as the other team. Not everyone wins every game (just ask the New England Patriots.) Unfocused mistakes, refusing to following coaching and half-efforts really annoy him. And when dealing with teenagers, these things will happen but how the team and the coaches respond is interesting. I found this a very entertaining story. I think it is suitable reading material, subject and language for teenagers and up. While it is a fairly simple read, it does maintain your attention throughout the book. You keep turning the page to see how the Lady Rockets respond to the various issues that come up. Anyone who is currently in high school, even if not on a team, would enjoy this book. Anyone who has ever played and\or coached a sports team, on any level, can related to the girls and coaches. Also check out “Eastside” and “Iron and Steel’ by the same author.< Less
