An interesting portrait of a time and place and the rare opportunity that this group of athletic girls had.
There was some useful history in this book even for non-sport fans. For example, I learned that companies like the Dallas Shoe Company had professional women's basketball teams composed of employees. This was in the 1930's.

The only thing disconcerting about the book was the author's imagined dialogues between the characters . I guess she just had to imagine it, but there were times when this technique seemed a little too much

There is something awkward in the writing, but it is a great story and a good look at the politics of women's athletics 80 years ago.
