I love all the "million dollar" books by Dan Gutman. My son loved them around 2nd/3rd grade. ( )

Eddie Ball is a middle school student who is going through tough times. He lives with his widowed mother who has just recently lost her job and he is looking for things to turn around. A poetry contest is sponsored by his mother's prior employer and when he wins the contest with the help of his neighbor, he trains to make the million dollar shot and undergoes situations along the way. The book is written in easy to read sentences and makes a great hi lo book for middle schoolers. I would recommend this book for children grades 3 - 7. ( )

Everything is going wrong for Eddie. His friends make fun of him because he can't sink the shot and now his mother has lost her job. Eddie enters a contest and wins. If he sinks a shot at the basketball game he will win a million dollars. Eddie knows his family needs this and the pressure is on.

Readers will keep reading as the wonder if Eddie is going to make the shot.

After reading the story, students could imagine that Eddie won the million and decide how he should spend it. They can create a list of things they would buy and how much each costs until they have a list that totals to a million dollars. ( )
