All the way through the 2nd half, as the pages in my right hand got narrower and narrower I kept thinking "HOW ON EARTH IS THIS BOOK GOING TO END" which I guess is maybe the best feeling to have as you are reading a book.
This is a story about high school basketball players the same was Friday Night Lights was about football. It's about 2 kids from Circumstances, and how their relationship (and their relationship with basketball) helps them through difficult times. The story is full of surprises - incorporating Harry Potter, Sun-Ra, and the infinite unknowableness of the universe in really fun & interesting ways. A great read. Sad and emotional but also hopeful.
