Description

Walter Dean Myers, author of popular young adult books like Monster and Slam!, is a five-time recipient of the prestigious Coretta Scott King Award. For Harlem high school student Drew Lawson, basketball is the only ticket into college, because his grades are lacking. Luckily he's got mad skills on the court, and a scholarship to shoot university hoops seems guaranteed. But then a slam-dunking rival steals the ball right out of Drew's hands, robbing him of team MVP status. To save his future, Drew must now prove how deep his game really goes.

Professional reviews

"Harlem's Drew Lawson sees basketball as his future. But he must get through his season first, and that means trying to understand the influences around him. From heeding the messages his coaches send him to watching a friend's brother go through the court system to dealing with people from other backgrounds, it all weighs on Drew's mind. In these characters JD Jackson's narration shines. Primarily through varied pitches, characters are given personalities--a deeper, slower voice for one teammate, an Eastern-European accent for another. Jackson gives his best narration to Drew's sister, a precocious student with a fun attitude. Myers uses kids' street language (more hip than crude), and his message is fairly basic. But Jackson brings his "game," so to speak, to listeners. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
