About the Book



All eyes are on 17-year-old Lonnie Jackson while he practices with his team for a citywide basketball Tournament of Champions.

Book Synopsis



By the groundbreaking author of the award-winning Monster-a visionary who influenced and inspired a generation-this fast-paced and poignant story reveals the fierce underworld of sports.

All eyes are on seventeen-year-old Lonnie Jackson while he practices with his team for a city-wide basketball Tournament of Champions. His coach, Cal, knows Lonnie has what it takes to be a pro basketball player, but warns him about giving in to the pressure. Cal knows because he, too, once had the chance--but sold out.

As the tournament nears, Lonnie learns that some heavy bettors want Cal to keep him on the bench so that the team will lose the championship. As the last seconds of the game tick away, Lonnie and Cal must make a decision. Are they willing to blow the chance of a lifetime?
