It’s one single steamy July day at the West 4th Street Court in NYC, otherwise known as the Cage. Hotshot baller ESPN is wooing the scouts, Boo is struggling to guard the weird new guy named Waco, a Spike Lee wannabe has video rolling, and virgin Irene is sizing up six-foot-eight-and-a-half-inch-tall Chester. Nine of YA literature’s top writers reveal how it all goes down in this searing novel in short stories that ingeniously pick up where the last one ends. Characters weave in and out of narratives, perspectives change, and emotions play out for a fluid and fast-paced ode to the game. Crackling with humor, grit, and streetball philosophy, and featuring poems by Charles R. Smith Jr., this anthology is a slam dunk. Who’s got next?

    " One day, one court, ten testaments to the drama inside the game and out. This is the home of pick-up basketball, downtown Manhatten, where the immortals played when black players weren't allowed in big-time college basketball and the NBA. And still they come, troubled, homeless, too young, too old, nothing matters but your game when you step into The Cage. "

    " I especially loved the concept of this book. The writing of the different authors worked really well. I was a little disappointed in the ending chapter, but I really liked the book as a whole. "

    " So here's my problem with this one - I'm so clearly not the right audience at all that I don't feel even close to capable of evaluating it. I like a good sports story but I didn't even understand what was going on with the basketball half the time. I think the language was just a little beyond me. Basically, I'm willing to take other people's word that it's good and will recommend it to readers as appropriate, but it's just not my thing. "

    " A great book that is a collection of short stories that follows one day on the court. It's great to see things from a bunch of different characters view. Each player has a unique story to tell and even the spectators of the games are interesting. A great book for anyone who likes basketball. "
