CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Betting Game is Heather O’Connor’s contribution to the “Orca Sports” series. Like other titles in this series, Betting Game is a high-interest read for reluctant readers.

Betting Game is a very compelling story with interesting characters that kept this reader wanting to read more.

O’Connor deals with topics that would be well worth discussing with almost any teen: the value of team-work; honesty; and ethics.

I will certainly include Betting Game in our curriculum resource collection and would recommend it for other school libraries as well.

**** /4 Highly Recommended.
