From the author of the award-winning Game Changer comes a new novel about two student-athletes searching for stardom, a young reporter searching for the truth, and a crosstown basketball rivalry that goes too far. The people of Walthorne love their basketball—and one of the things they love most is the special rivalry between the Walthorne North Middle School Cougars and the Walthorne South Middle School Panthers. As the season begins, two star players are feeling the heat: Austin Chambers, captain of Walthorne North, worries that he's not good enough to live up to his father's legacy, while across town, the brilliantly talented Carter Haswell, captain of Walthorne South, is already under pressure to get a scholarship that might ease his family's financial stress. While both boys do whatever they can to make sure their team wins, Alfie Jenks, a school sports reporter, discovers that behind-the-scenes scandals are just as much a part of youth sports as on-the-court action. When she blows the story wide open, the whole season is jeopardized.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Scenes of action on the court are vivid and exciting.” School Library Journal
“Examin[es] the pernicious effects poor judgment, vicarious living, and outright self-interest can have on the physical and mental well-beings of student athletes.” Kirkus Reviews

Author Bio: Tommy Greenwald

Author Bio: Tommy Greenwald

Tommy Greenwald has enjoyed reading all his life, which is why he’s appalled that his kids Charlie, Joe, and Jack, would prefer getting a dental check-up to checking out a book. After years of pleading, threatening, and bribing, Tommy finally decided the only way to get his kids to read was to write a book about how to get out of reading. And they read it! (So they say). Greenwald is the Executive Creative Director at SpotCo, an entertainment advertising agency in New York City and lives in Connecticut with his family.
