    schema:description "It's stupid we're still not talking because I want something more than what Whitman can offer. Out of everyone, I expected him to get that. Bunny's been feeling the pressure to make the most of his prodigious basketball skills: his mom works the graveyard shift, and his dad's bookstore isn't doing so hot. So when an exclusive prep school with a championship basketball team and a scholarship comes knocking, he answers. But this decision might have cost him his best friend. Everyone's so worried about helping Bunny. Why's nobody but me sweating Wallace's situation? Bunny's fine. Everyone's handing him the future on a silver platter. Nasir thought things were bad when Bunny ditched Whitman for St. Sebastian's without even asking his opinion, leaving him far behind. But when his cousin, Wallace, confides that he and his grandmother are being evicted, Nasir has bigger problems to deal with than Bunny's betrayal. When Wallace's situation becomes desperate, Bunny and Nasir will be forced to make choices with bigger consequences than a state title, and to decide just how much they're willing to risk for a friend. -- From dust jacket."@en ;
