Tags:basketball, fiction, juvenile, kidnapping

In the "The Fighting Five," a teenage girl has been kidnapped and is being forced to marry a ruthless gangster, Walter Watson. So she orchestrates yet another kidnapping, the champion basketball team of Clarkville High. It seems Watson is an avid basketball player, and as a wedding gift, she wants to watch him play the state's top prep school team. Little does Watson know that the team he has arranged to kidnap includes the girl's own brother, Monk Leeming.

If you happen to have read any of Sainsbury's football books (Gridiron Grit, Ros Hackney Halfback, The Winning Forward Pass), you'll see that Sainsbury writes about the same characters and the same fictional Clarkville prep school. In "The Fighting Five," he turns them into basketball stars.

Sainsbury knows his sports, and describes the basketball action in highly technical detail that any school coach could appreciate. [Suggest a different description.]
