"Brooks's fine first novel has a baskeball theme and plenty of action, but sport is merely the vehicle for delivering a serious story of friendship and madness." --"SLJ." "Brilliant sportswriting and a trenchant examination of the friendship between narrator Jerome Foxworthy [an African-American seventh-grader] and Bix, a white boy in trouble." --"BL."
