This book is about a young girl named, Molly who has lost her mother. She finds out that her dad is an NBA star for the Boston Celtics. The NBA star, Josh Cameron, thinks this girl is crazy and tells her to leave him alone at first. As soon as Josh finally starts to believe that he is her father, Molly’s foster home parents move away and she is forced to make a decision. Josh Cameron is the antagonist and tries to get his “daughter” out of his life. The cover is a basketball spinning on a person’s finger. This is appealing because it gives info about the story and is also drawn very detailed. This book is open to any reader, especially the ones who get the father/daughter relationship, or someone who loves basketball. ( )

I like this book because it is about my favorite sport. Also because it talks about how a man with a daughter loses their mother that had cancer like my mom.

When his daughter Molly Parker arrives in his life, claiming to be his daughter. She catches him of guard and molly says her mom, Jen, revealed his identity before losing her battle with cancer. But as Molly gets to know the real Josh, the on the camera never sees, she starts to understand why her mother never wanted her to know her dad.

The book Miracle on 49th Street is the best book I have read so fair. The author of this book, Mike Lupica draws you into the book so much. He also does a great job with describing the characters in a way that makes you feel like you are in the book with them.
Molly Parker goes on the biggest adventure in her life trying to find out if Celtic superstar Josh Cameron is her real father. The book will have you clenching your teeth and your palms sweating on how interesting this book is.
Miracle on 49th Street is not for everyone but if you are a fan of the Celtics or basketball in general then you will love the book Miracle on 49th Street by Mike Lupica, Because I know I did! ( )

Book talk: There's a basketball on the cover; therefore, this is a guy's book. The main character is a girl; therefore, this is a chick book. The Boston Celtics are part of the storyline; therefore, this is a book for guys. Another part of the storyline is about Molly, who lost her mother to cancer; therefore, this book is for girls. This girl Molly thinks the star point guard of the Celtics is her dad; therefore, uhhhhhhhhh, I don't know. If you want a peek into a sports-superstar's world (a fictitious superstar), and you don't mind the sometimes sad parts about Molly and her mom, then it doesn't matter if you are a super-stud or high-maintenance girly-girl, this is a pretty good story!

Molly Parker wasn't here for some stupid autograph. She wasn't even here for the open practice the Celtics had run today, their last practice before they would begin the regular season tomorrow night against the 76ers.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142409421, Paperback)

Josh Cameron is MVP of the championship Boston Celtics and a media darling with a spotless reputation. He has it all . . . including a daughter he never knew. When twelve-year-old Molly Parker arrives in his life, claiming to be his daughter, she catches him off guard. Molly says her mom, Jen, revealed his identity before losing her battle with cancer. Josh isn?t so sure about this girl?she must be trying to scam him for his money. Still, there?s something about Molly that reminds him so much of Jen. But as Molly gets to know the real Josh, the one the camera never sees, she starts to understand why her mother never wanted her to know her dad. Josh has room in his heart for only two things: basketball and himself. Does Molly really want this man for a father? Together, these two strangers learn that sometimes, for things to end up the way you want them to, you have to fire up a prayer at the buzzer and hope it goes in.
