Reviews
In Maura Stokes's debut novel, Sam has to muck her way through the most heartbreaking and inexplicable loss of her young life, not realizing the gift this transformation will give to her. This story is not only about the redeeming power of sports and teammates, but also the embracing power of love. And for both Sam and the reader, that, too, is an undeniable gift.--Kathi Appelt, New York Times Bestselling author of The Underneath, National Book Award finalist, and Newbery Honor winner
A great friendship story. A fine basketball story. A deep story of loss. What a fresh and authentic voice we have in Maura Ellen Stokes!--Marion Dane Bauer, author of On My Honor, a Newbery Honor book
