Author Bob Moseley writes fast-paced YA sports novels dripping with drama and realism.
Be careful of what you wish for. Sixteen-year-old Mark Chamberlain always dreamed of playing in a state championship basketball game. But he never envisioned a nightmare performance that would bring utter humiliation and scar him as an outcast at school.

When it feels as though the world is against him, with the support of a beautiful girl, Mark tries to summon the inner strength and courage to be different -- just like legendary basketball star Wilt Chamberlain.
With another basketball season beckoning, Mark is given a precious chance for redemption.
