Renna Rashad is not only captain, she's also de facto coach of her basketball team. But when a rival from an opposing team takes a vacant spot on the team, Renna faces some tough choices she wasn't prepared for. It starts with a shove in the hall, then a slight on the team's on-line blog, followed by exclusion from a team social event, and finally an uncalled-for move on the court that leaves her injured.
Will Renna admit she's the target of bullying before her beloved team is torn apart? [Fry Reading Level - 3.5
