BISAC: Fiction / Coming of Age
Seventeen-year- old Woody and his friends are looking at dead ends in Mendocino, a small
town on the Northern California coast. So is Ray Ellis, their basketball coach, an ex-All
American with a dark past. Everything changes when sophisticated city kid Chase MacMillan shows up, inspiring in them all the confidence and self-respect they need to face the future. But as Chase introduces a new competitive spirit both on and off the court, those dead ends close in on his friends, and Ray’s dark past starts catching up with him, Woody discovers, tragically, at what cost success can come.
