More About This Title Heat Wave


A fun-filled junior fiction series written in partnership with Basketball Australia

After wiping the floor in the interschool comp, Danny and his Bench Warmer mates are now playing club basketball. Their team is the Robdale Raptors and with a first-rate coach and basketball naturals like Crystal, Omyr, Angie and Leanne on their side, these newbies could pose a real threat! Especially when their resident commentator, Cody, is showing huge improvements on court. But with Greg ‘The Goat’ McGriffin running out for the all-star Holesley Heat team, the Raptors are going to face some FIERCE opposition – and that’s before Robdale Primary’s scheming principal has laid down her devious plan to ruin the Raptors’ chances! Can the team make it to the grand final or will they be a total no-show?
