"Jeremy Lin's story is that feel-good sports story that is surprising and uplifting," Scholastic vice president and publisher Debra Dorfman said in a statement. "His hard work, determination, and perseverance serve as an inspiration to sports fans of all ages. Jeremy Lin is a role model and we look forward to publishing this book and getting it into the hands of kids as soon as possible through our retail and school distribution channels."
