Levi was simple, like a child. It was the best thing about him, and it was the worst, too. 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. When Levi reluctantly tells Jonas that Hartwell abused him, Jonas has to decide whether he should risk his future career to report the coach. Pitch-perfect basketball plays, well-developed characters, and fine storytelling make this psychological sports novel a slam dunk.

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.
