About the Book

I’m Gonna Win features an eleven-year-old, sixth grade boy named Matthew Casey.  A basketball great in his own mind, Matt is thrilled about the prospect of playing basketball for the Austin Avengers, a team coached by his Uncle John.  Being a very talented basketball player, Matt feels he’ll have no problem earning the position of Point Guard, but things turn sour when the boy doesn’t get his way.  Uncle John tells Matt that he will be treated just like any other boy on the team, and Matt gets very upset when he doesn’t get what he wants in life.  A terrible struggle ensues as Matt tries to cope with his social frustration, and when his terrible temper gets the best of him, his uncle asks him to leave the team.  Will Matt ever act his age and learn to respect his Uncle John as a basketball coach?  More importantly, will Matt ever learn that life is not always about winning or being the best?  I’m Gonna Win is the heartwarming story of an angry but lovable boy who learns an important lesson in life.  It is ideal for boys in fourth, fifth, and sixth grades who not only love basketball, but a good old-fashioned competition along the way.
