"Gene understands stories - comic book stories, in particular. Big action. Bigger thrills. And the hero always wins. But Gene doesn't get sports. As a kid, his friends called him 'Stick' and every basketball game he played ended in pain. He lost interest in basketball long ago, but at the high school where he now teaches, it's all anyone can talk about. The men's varsity team, the Dragons, is having a phenomenal season that's been decades in the making. Each victory brings them closer to their ultimate goal: the California State Championships. Once Gene gets to know these young all-stars, he realizes that their story is just as thrilling as anything he's seen on a comic book page. He knows he has to follow this epic to its end. What he doesn't know yet is that this season is not only going to change the Dragons's lives, but his own life as well."--Provided by publisher.

Awesome! submitted by manz on June 21, 2021, 6:54pm This book is fantastic! It's one of my favorite graphic novels I've ever read. It's a memoir, and is nonfiction and about basketball, and it's long, and I have no idea why I loved it so much. Yang is a great storyteller! Just read it.

Pretty good submitted by Xris on January 10, 2022, 9:10pm I read his other book American Born Chinese and thought I'd like this one too. I did, but not as much as the first one. I'm not particularly into basketball, but it was interesting to learn about the back story of how it became a sport for both men and women. And I liked the diversity of the book.
