From the mind of basketball legend and Academy Award-winning storyteller
Kobe Bryant comes this radically original portrait of five young basketball
players, one enlightening coach, and the awesome transformative power of
the game. Filled with insights about the mental stamina and emotional clarity
that peak performance requires, this is an indispensable story for young
athletes, coaches, educators, and anyone interested in the astonishing
potential of team sports to unlock individual growth.
THE GAME WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
Magic doesn't seem possible for the West Bottom Badgers. They're the lowest-ranked
basketball team in their league, and they live in the poorest neighborhood in Dren.
Nobody expects them to succeed at anything. Plus, every kid on the team has secret
struggles of his own.
When a new coach named Professor Wizenard arrives on the first day of training
camp, the Badgers can't explain the magical-seeming things they see and hear. Every
player experiences unique and strange visions - visions that challenge everything they
thought they knew about basketball, and about their lives and their secrets off the
court. To survive the increasingly intense ordeals of training, the Badgers will need to
take unimaginable risks, learn to trust their teammates, and confront the darkness
'The novel is unusual in structure and plot as readers experience the same incidents portrayed through different perspectives, each revealing another layer of the story...Solid, authentic basketball action with plenty of food for thought, coloured with elements of fantasy.' - Kirkus
