About This Book


Max Vernon is at a crossroads. After years of playing basketball, he has started trading the courts of Philadelphia for its streets. He tries holding onto his basketball dream but is soon faced with a series of life-changing decisions. Should he run the streets and make money with Raul and Theo? Or should he keep playing basketball even though he feels like a failure? What Max doesn't realize is how much these decisions will affect everything—and everyone—around him.
