內容簡介

內容簡介 On Point tells of two vulnerable sixteen-year-old girls teaming with a gentle, retired coach to overcome the low expectations and pettiness in their poor town. Molly Rascon, a basketball geek with advanced skills and a hatred for losing, Bianca Acero-Steele, an indomitable warrior with a dark past, and their teammates begin practice on a neighbor's driveway to improve their skills. Long hours and determination kindle a strange flame, once unrealistic dreams emerge, and a journey into the possible binds the girls into one heart. Set in a Colorado mountain community where girls sports are an afterthought and dedicated female athletes an anomaly, On Point is a sensitive and inspiring story, with basketball being the vehicle that provides Molly and Bianca a chance to secure an identity beyond poverty and violence. The outward competition is on a sports court, but the internal struggle is life's arena.
