Myers, Walter Dean. Game

Myers, Walter Dean. Game. HarperTeen, 2008 [978-0-06-058295-1]

Drew is one of the leads on his Harlem High School basketball team. The game is his life and also his ticket to college. One day a white boy comes to school and becomes the coach’s pet and Drew is no longer where he wants to be in the game. This new boy is taking attention away from him when the scouts come to watch the games. Can Drew and this new team member resolve their conflict for the better of them both? This 218 page book got a little too wrapped up in the games… to the point where it started to lose me. It would be a great book for someone wrapped up in basketball.
