Description - Patty Takes Charge: Game Day! 3 by Patty Mills

Through lots of hard work, Patty's skills have improved out of sight. And he's invited to step it up in a big basketball tournament.

Even though he'll miss out on time in his beloved Torres Strait, playing in a major competition in Sydney is an opportunity too exciting to pass up. Patty starts to think he might have a future in basketball.

But an injury puts it all at risk. Could Patty's dream be over before it's begun?
