As for the storyline, it's about a kid, Josh Bell, who plays basketball and is the son of a former NBA player who pushes him pretty hard. He has a big reputation to live up to and his father is constantly pushing him. He also has a twin brother who is also a baller. This is his story of growing up, playing ball and the tragedies in life that push people apart and bring them together.
It's well told, once you adjust to the rhythm and it made me cry and reread certain areas that were particularly poignant.
