Check out the new graphic novel Dragon Hoops by Gene Luen Yang. Dragon Hoops is part memoir and part chronicle of the basketball team from Bishop O’Dowd High School, where Yang worked as a teacher. In searching for a new story idea, Yang decided to follow the school’s basketball team while they set out to win their first state championship. The team had been in the championship seven times but had never taken home the trophy. Yang chronicles the story of each of the diverse members of the team. Yang tells the story with interesting history, such as the story of how basketball was invented, the history of how basketball came to China, and the story of the first NBA superstar, George Mikan.(School Library Journal)
