a little unbelievable, but fun

Last Shot: A Final Four Mystery by John Feinstein
Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
Genre: mystery, YA
Challenge: A-Z (title)
Review: While the situation is a bit unbelievable (two students stumble upon a blackmail scandal at the Final Four of NCAA basketball and are determined to save the star player) the characters themselves are well-drawn. The scenes with the big-name sports reporters are very funny, even if you don't recognize all the names. Anyone who enjoys NCAA basketball and a good mystery will like this book.
