Mark Fink's "Stepping Up" is a very insightful, motivating, and hysterical book about basketball. I liked this book and would rate it a 4 out of 5 because it was action-packed, and was filled with basketball throughout. It was great comeback story, and you couldn’t help, but cheer for Ernie as he takes on his best friend Mike, and the enemy team to prove that he is more than just an average person. This book would appeal to anybody who loves basketball, or a great comeback story.
Mark Fink has written for television, including Full House and Saved by the Bell, and created Hang Time. Stepping Up is his first novel. Age Range: 12 and up. Grade Level: 7 - 9. Paperback: 216 pages. JK, as they sa. As for happy endings, Mark Fink does not settle for one - he runs up the score by taking our protagonist seven years into the future for even more good news. Whew! One can dream, I guess, and sometimes books are the medium for that dreaming. All that said, I'll praise the book on two counts especially: As with John Coy, you get some easily-read but description of game action. The other highlight is the humor.
Stuttering teen boy goes to basketball camp, finds hidden talents and strengths. At last, a book geared for the teenage reader, with gadget-savvy teenage characters, who speak the lingo; yet refreshingly absent from the story are dysfunctional families, major transgressions and supernatural forces. Unexpected plot twists made me eager to read on to find out what would happen next.
Mark wrote and produced for television, doing shows for every major network, including Full House, Saved By The Bell, Growing Pains and many others. Snoop says, KEWL! Mark also created and produced the NBC teen comedy Hang Time, about a high school basketball team in Indiana. This show allowed him to enjoy two of his passions: comedy and basketball.

Fink’s tax proposal mirrors something that Hillary Clinton has advocated for recently. And Clinton has echoed Fink’s views on short-termism. That’s raised talk on Wall Street and in Washington that Fink may be angling for the job of Treasury Secretary should Clinton win the presidency. Fink has been a prominent Democratic donor, though there is no record of him directly donating to the Clinton campaign, and he is said to be close to President Obama.
