Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375869646, Hardcover)Bestselling sports writer John Feinstein exposes the big money and back room deals that go into college recruiting in this high-octane YA novel.
Terrell Jamerson is the #1 high school basketball player in the country. His team is poised to win the states. He's got top colleges lined up to offer him scholarships. Press coverage at every game. Everyone says he could play in the NBA tomorrow. He's living the dream, right?
Danny Wilcox would tell you a different story. Danny is Terrell's best friend and teammate, and a top prospect himself. But he sees that not all of the people buzzing around Terrell have his best interests at heart. The sneaker guys, the money managers, the college boosters—they're all so eager to help. And to get rich themselves in the process.
It's a dirty game, but Terrell will have to learn to play if he wants his chance at a slam dunk. . . .
