Replacing "Felon For Peace" with more nonfiction, I chose "The Last Shot" by Darcy Frey because it's due at the library Saturday. I just read the entire thing straight through, it was that good.
The author follows Coney Island's Lincoln High School (my mother's alma mater) basketball stars for several months, including then-freshman Stephon Marbury (the name was familiar even to me, a non-sports fan). The story is similar to "Hoop Dreams" which I saw in the theater and loved; I have the DVD and companion book, but haven't looked at them. This is a similarly heartbreaking and gripping story of real people and their struggles and triumphs. I just loved it.
Now I need to get some work done.
