The Hoopster by Alan Sitomer

Andre is a 18 year old boy who loves to write and play basketball. His dream is to become a famous writer. Everything is going his way when he’s asked to write an article for a local magazine about racism. Andre feels a little out of place when asked to write it. He thinks that he was picked because of his African-American heritage. But aside from his feelings, Andre writes the article and it is a big hit. Everyone loves the article; he got letters and phone calls left and right. Just as everything is going all good for Andre, everything suddenly goes in a downward spiral for him. Read it to find out what happens. This book his an emotional roller coaster. I definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
