I would compare this book to Travel Team by Mike Lupica. They are the same author and, same characters. As I started reading I found out that this book is a sequel to Travel Team. It been a few years since I have read Travel Team, but from the most previous books I have read all the styles are pretty same. All the genres are realistic-fiction. All Mike's book are about sports. This one happens to be about basketball, as is Travel Team. They also share a conflict, Danny Walker is to short, so no one wants him on there basketball team.
