This book has many facets, including how athletic passion -- basketball in this case -- provides needed structure and motivation to inner-city kids. In short, a grandmother's sage upbringing, a concerned basketball coach and close-knit team/family, and God-given character and athletic talent peak to get Courtney and over 300 people out of the disaster that was Katrina. I highly recommend this book.
It did not disappoint! The Author touched on so much of the heartbreak, the survival skills, the humanity, and the audacity of those young men to do what their elected officials failed to do. Have recommended it to others--may even re-read it myself!!
