Rules of the Game

Author Timothy S. Lane has written a brilliant and highly readable story of teenage Jimmy Kirkus as he travels a “rough road” in coming to terms with his inherited gift of playing winning basketball.Lane’s writing of this novel is unique as the twenty-six chapters of this novel spell out Jimmy Kirkus’ times as a basketball ball player from the very young age of five when his incredible ability to play the game is apparent. Jimmy’s father, Todd “Freight Train” Kirkus, his  quirky grandfather,”Flying Finn” Kirkus, his mother Genny, his younger brother Dex, Coach Kelly, School Superintendent Berg, and all the major and minor characters are important and add so very much to this story which goes way, way beyond just being another story of high school basketball.
