With the confidence Bobby learned from the Choctaw legend "No Name," he is deternimed to find a way to help his friends.

"We heard a loud crashing sound and froze. Shattered glass flew from the coach’s office and onto the court. Lloyd’s dad still held the chair he used to break the window. He turned and faced Coach Robison. “You might think everybody’s happy with a wild Indian coaching our kids, but you’re wrong!” he shouted, waving the chair back and forth in front of our coach."
 

“The relationships in No More No Name are carefully developed, offering readers a best-practices model for caring intervention. The basketball action is clear and engaging, and readers so inclined will wish they could play under Coach Robison. A lesson in sympathy, delivered with heart.”

––Kirkus Review, June 2017

“The No Name series deals head-on with heavy topics, such as racism, alcoholism, bullying, teamwork, and familial forgiveness. It’s good to see the language and traditions of the Native American experience so prominently woven throughout a straightforward sports story.”
