Finley lives in a bad part of town but he has found basketball to be his escape. He has dreams to making it out of his neighborhood one day. When Russ moves to his neighborhood, Finley learns that Russ once played basketball but lost his hoop dreams when tragedy strikes his family. The two end up teaching each other valuable life lessons. Basketball and friendship give these boys the hope they need to make it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of basketball. It is a great book about friendship.
