What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|Fifteen-year-old Drew "True" Robinson loves being the best point-guard prospect in high-school basketball, but learns the consequences of fame through a former player, as well as through the man who expects to be his manager when True reaches the NBA.|
From the Publisher:
#1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica makes his return to the basketball court!
|There's a reason teammates call him "True." Because for basketball phenom Drew Robinson, there is nothing more true than his talent on the court. It's the kind that comes along once in a generation and is loaded with perks--and with problems.
|Before long, True buys in to his own hype, much to the chagrin of his mother, who wants to keep her boy's head grounded--and suddenly trouble has a way of finding him. That is, until a washed-up former playground legend steps back onto the court and takes True under his wing.
|In this age of street agents promising riches to kids barely out of elementary school and college programs being taken down because of recruiting violations, True Legend is a resonant and inspiring novel in the Lupica tradition.
Mike Lupica, a prominent New York sportswriter, also appears regularly as a television commentator.
