it was amazing

I picked up this book because it was montcas(ugh) and I didn't have anything to read. But as I got into it, I thought, wow, this is excellent! It's about a basketball player named Finley and his basketball playing girlfriend Erin, and they are teased mercilessly in a town full of trash and broken syringes littering the ground. The town is run by the Irish Mob, who would probably beat you just for calling them that. The basketball coach asks Finley to visit his friends son, so he does, and not only does he have the same basketball# as Finley, but was the only black player on his team, just like how Finley is the only white player on his team. Can they find out why coach picked Finley to introduce him to the school? Ok, that last sentence was a little corny, one might even say dumb, but this book is awesome, so you should read it.
