There is an unwritten rule at Franklin High School: the black kids play basketball and the white kids wrestle. but Ray Wisniewski's got a passion for hoops, and he's not about to give up his dreams. When Ray finally makes the basketball team, no one is happy for him, not Ray's friends from his tight-knit Polish neighborhood and certainly not Robert, a black player on Ray's team who seems to have it in for him. Tensions build as Ray's worlds collide - until Ray is faced with a heart-wrenching decision that could change everything. Grades 9 and up.
