Summary A street smart, action-packed basketball series from debut author LJ Alonge. Justin has a list of goals taped over his bed. Number 1 is "figure out life plans." Number 5 is "Earn Zen Master rating in WoW." Nowhere on that list is "Play the crew from Ghosttown," but that's the type of trouble that always seems to find him. At 6'4", fifteen-year-old Justin should be respected. He should dominate the court and strike fear in the hearts of ballers. Instead, he mostly sits on the sidelines, reading Lord of the Rings and hoping girls don't notice how much he sweats. When the kids from Ghosttown challenge his crew, no one in his neighborhood wants him to play. But miss a chance to prove himself on home turf' Nah. That's not what Frodo Baggins would do. The debut title from LJ Alonge's new basketball series pulses with action on and off the court. With wit, humor, and brutal honesty, Justin uncovers the rocky path to greatness.
Audience 7 years and up.
