Cal soon becomes a huge impact on Lonnie, and they face many challenges. He is an amazing basketball player; and dreams of playing basketball in college someday, and of course in the National Basketball Association (N.B.A.). From this story, you will learn that the people around you really affect who you are, and how much it helps to have the support of family and friends in your life. He doubts his new couch, Cal, and doesn't think that he'll be there for his new team. This book makes me think about how hard it would be to grow up in a rough city. Cal knows because he, too, once had the chance, but sold out. p All eyes are on seventeen-year-old Lonnie Jackson while he practices with his team for a city-wide basketball Tournament of Champions. Lonnie lives in Harlem, NY, and is struggling through poverty, and other struggles. The team wins the game, but Cal is stabbed afterward in the locker room as payback for not doing what he was told. As the last seconds of the game tick away Lonnie and Cal must make a decision. Lonnie lives in poverty in a rough neighborhood. Basketball provides an escape from his problems and serves as a symbol of hope for the future.
Cal eventually decides to let Lonnie play. He soon realizes what the man has done in his past, and can completely connect with him. I am now reading more Walter Dean Myers books, and he has became my favorite author.
