Reviews

"Ribay's depictions of Bunny's and Nasir's lives are beautifully--if not tragically--drawn...[Ribay] painstakingly shows the state of (sometimes violent) desperation for many young men of the inner city, buoyed only by the distant chance of a better life through stardom. Despite its downbeat aspects, the story nevertheless manages to infuse humanity into the boys' lives by showcasing the importance of family, the value of friendship, and the importance of courage in the face of difficult situations." -- Booklist "A well-executed book featuring complex, diverse characters we rarely meet--a real winner for its heartbeat, compassion, and integrity."--Kirkus, STARRED review "Without a doubt, Ribay's compelling book belongs on the shelf alongside contemporary heavy-hitters like Angie Thomas's The Hate U Give, Brendan Kiely and Jason Reynolds's All-American Boys, and Nic Stone's Dear Martin."--School Library Journal, STARRED review "As the boys take tentative steps to salvage their friendship, they navigate high-stakes choices and consider the value of loyalty, integrity, and sacrifice in a story driven by fast-paced drama on and off the court."-Publishers Weekly, STARRED review "Readers will race through the intrigue and volatile basketball action to the explosive conclusion."--Horn Book Magazine --
