What are you shooting for?
                              
For seventeen-year-old Cameron Marx it's a future. With his mother struggling to make ends meet, basketball is his only shot. There's just one small problem: he goes to Westlake High, the second best school in the state as far as basketball goes. To be the best, you have to beat continual state champions Bristol High. Westlake and Bristol are known rivals on both the basketball court and throughout the city of Akron. Tension is always at a high when it comes to the beating Bristol's basketball team annually gives to Westlake at the state championship. However, all comes to a head when the superintendent decides to tear down old Bristol High and ship most of its students to Westlake. Cameron is one of the best basketball players in the city and the last thing he needs is a bunch of Bristol basketball players coming in to ruin his spotlight on the court, after all, it's not just a game for him, it's all or nothing.
                 Seventeen-year-old Monica Matthews is no stranger to the beef between the two schools and quickly pledges lasting loyalty to Bristol once she transfers to Westlake. In fact, she'd sooner drop out than step foot at Westlake. Being the head basketball coach's daughter and the star player's good friend, changing schools is a fate worse than death. It makes her a big target.
                 When Monica and Cameron meet sparks is the last thing that fly. To Monica, Cameron's just the cocky prick on the sorry basketball team. To Cameron, Monica's just the angry girl who needs to chill out. With allegiance for their two schools, nothing could bring these two close together - except maybe the good of the game.

Been meaning to read this for a while now. Glad to finally be starting. I don't usually read a lot of sports centered books, so this should be interesting. I'm ready! :)

Y'all better be hungry. A lot of boys have that same appetite.
I'll joke around about his music cause he's white but I really appreciate that he's not a cliche and listens to rap/trap/hip-hop/RNB and appropriates black culture and colloquialisms. But your characters usually have great depth, Whitney so no surprise there

Seriously. Unless your fridge is broken the milk should be perfectly fine. It hasn't expired yet.
