LUTHER HIGH SERIES: BOOK 1. Derrick Rose, star point guard at Luther High, has it all. The girlfriend, the friends, the popularity, and tons of colleges after him for his amazing talent with a ball. Only thing Derrick is lacking is a passing grade in Trig to be able to play in the school championship. However, his Trig teacher came up with a solution and that is to do tutoring sessions with one of her best students, Nathalia. Nathalia Daley is the girl people do not really notice or care about. She's living with her older sister Vanessa. Nathalia is a straight 'A' student who loves theater. She participates in school plays and musicals, but has never really gotten an audience because people are mostly interested in the school games. She comes across the star player one day after school and thinks that it isn't a good idea to be working with him, but seeing how desperate he is, she comes up with a plan. A plan that he wouldn't want to pass up.
