When I first picked up this book, I expected it to be a book describing amazing shots and the on and off-court controversy of a basketball player. However, this book disappointed me because it was more of a mystery than a basketball novel. The author spent most of the book discussing what happens to Stevie Thomas and Susan Anderson, the main characters of the book. The two won a nationwide contest to attend the Final Four basketball game occurring in New Orleans, where they will be considered as working journalists. However, they overhear a shocking statement by a coach of one of the teams, and are suddenly intertwined in the mystery of their lives. To me, parts of the book seemed boring, and I thought that the author didn't do a very good job trying to combine basketball with mystery. It could have been better though, if he described it from player's point of view. Overall, I was disappointed because of the lack of basketball elements, but I think that this would be a good book to anyone who likes a nice mystery.

Ranya ~*If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun*~ I thought the book was set up to be a mystery. I felt that the basketball part of the story is just to set the setting up
