Greg "Slam" Harris's life revolves around basketball. His game, which is formidable, is the only thing he has control over. Everything outside of the court is a struggle: His marks are slipping; the basketball coach in his new school benches him for his attitude; and he's afraid his friend, Ice, is dealing drugs. Myers's book reflects difficulties faced by young kids when their dreams are all they have to hold onto, and they're forced to grow up too soon. Thomas Penny's narration ably presents the voices of Slam's teachers, with their snide, preaching, and ultimately hopeful messages, and shines when Slam goes after his dream. E.J.F.
