Hook: Have you ever had something you absolutely love, but there's something standing in your way?

Opinion: I have, and the main character of this book and I go through a similar situation.

Thirteen-year-old Ashlee Carson is a talented basketball player, but her mother thinks she should concentrate more on school. Ashlee desperately wants to earn a spot on the National Youth basketball team. She even recruits the help of her deadbeat dad, a former professional basketball player. Even if her mother will never forgive her for choosing sports over her education, Ashlee has to do everything in her power to achieve her goal.
I also like the way the book is made because it shows how hard it can be to be the basketball star in your school.
i thought it was good. It took me a couple of hours o read. It was a very easy read.
