Theresa Anderson is every kind of smart: too smart-mouthed for her own good, street smart enough to deal with a neighborhood that gets more dangerous every day, and more book smart than anyone knows.
When Teddy Anderson's little sister Tina is gunned down randomly in a drive-by shooting, the gangstas who rule the streets in the Anderson family's rapidly deteriorating neighborhood dismiss the incident as just another case of RP, RT-- wrong place, wrong time. According to gangsta logic, Tina doesn't even count as a statistic. Each member of the Anderson family is devastated. But for Teddy aka T-Bear, there's only one thing on his mind, and that's revenge...
A hard beat pumped from a radio by the fence. Ten players, twenty sneakers, two rims, one basketball: that's all there was. That's all they needed. A ball sailed through the air. Swish! Across the court, a player tried to dribble past a defender and take him to the hole, but the pick was weak and the defense clogged the middle. A shot was forced up off balance. Two players battled for position under the boards. Shawn, a white player for the Skins, got the tip, dribbled back up-court away from the basket, then stopped, popped, and nailed a three- point basket.
Sitomer, an acclaimed author as well as California's Teacher of the Year for 2007, delivers a poignant, funny coming-of-age story about a first-generation Hispanic teen torn between her dreams and her "familia."
