More Praise for Games of Deception:

“Maraniss’s well-researched book includes many period photographs that enhance the narrative. VERDICT This book is a smart read-alike for fans of Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat or its young adult adaptation. It would also add to any student’s study of the origins of World War II and the eventual involvement of the United States.” —School Library Journal

“History and sports fans will find common ground here, as Maraniss’ passionate narrative, a gallery of period photos and realia, sports charts, bibliography, and a planned index in the bound book draw readers into the inevitable debate: should we have gone?” —The Bulletin ofthe Center for Children’s Books

“Andrew Maraniss has developed a knack for topics that explore the intersection of sports and politics….This book will appeal to readers of all ages who want to know about the seamy side of the Olympics.”–Chapter 16

“Maraniss is an effective storyteller who skillfully paints a picture of the past.” —BookPage

Praise for Strong Inside:

*”This moving biography is thought-provoking, riveting and heart-wrenching, though it remains hopeful as it takes readers into the midst of the basketball and civil rights action.”–Booklist, starred review

“Even if you’re not a history buff, this important story is worth your time.”–Sports Illustrated Kids

“A must purchase for any middle school or high school library.”–Miss Yingling Reads
