When high school senior Jonas moves to Seattle, he is glad to meet Levi, a nice, soft-spoken guy and fellow basketball player. Suspense builds like a slow drumbeat as readers start to smell a rat in Ryan Hartwell, a charismatic basketball coach and sexual predator.

I liked it, but it had so much extra nothing. The whole book I was waiting for the hammer to drop. It didn't until p 200 of 300. Young boys should enjoy reading the basketball scenes, they really came alive. However, for me it was also about how two coaches had different coaching styles. I did like the main characters struggle to do what was right, and I thought the ending was very realistic.
