really liked it

This is about a African American teen, Greg a.k.a Slam, who loves to play basketball. He knows what to do for the game but if it don’t involve basketball he’s pretty much clueless. He struggles with school and struggles with getting along with the basketball coach. His best friend and “brother from another mother”, Charles a.k.a Ice, is keeping a secret from him.

I really like this book. It has gangs and how Slam handles life in a different school, while his best friend begins to act strange. My favorite characters are Slam and Ice because I love how they are so close they’re like brothers. They are a very entertaining part of the story.
