Stan ran into the gym in his street clothes and his old runners.
Stan ran into the gym in his street clothes and his old runners. Balls bounced everywhere, arced toward quiet hoops. Most of the JV team from last year was there, and the ten returning seniors, and plenty of others. Just as Stan had thought, the gym was full of sweaty guys up too early, trying too hard, to fill just two spots. Karl Brolin, Jamie Hartleman and the others had commandeered the south hoop. Like this was their private.
Stan is an intense sixteen-year-old loner who desperately wants to make the junior varsity basketball team.
The book I finished is Tilt by Alan Cumyn. When I got this book at the school library, it’s under sports when it should be love instead. Anyways this book focuses on a boy named Stan.
