Sixteen-year-old Becky Walden has two big dreams: to become an all-state basketball player and to find a special boy to love. When Becky moves to a new high school, she meets Matt McRae. Although Matt shares Becky’s love of basketball, he is reluctant to fight the small town politics that has reached into the high school and tainted their sport. Can she lead her teammates to stand up for what’s right? Will Matt fight with Becky or against her?
