“A bolt of lightning on my kicks…the court is sizzling. My sweat is drizzling. Stop all that quivering. Cuz tonight I’m delivering” raps basketball phenom Josh Bell. Thanks to his dad, he and his twin brother, Jordan, are kings on the court, with crossovers that make even the toughest ballers cry. But Josh has more than hoops in his blood. He’s got a river of rhymes flowing through him–a sick flow that helps him find his rhythm when everything’s on the line.
As their winning season unfolds, things begin to change. When Jordan meets the new girl in school, the twins’ tight-knit bond unravels. In this heartfelt novel, basketball and brotherhood intertwine to show Josh and Jordan that life doesn’t come with a playbook and, sometimes, it’s not about winning.
