Description - Pick-Up Game: A Full Day of Full Court by Marc Aronson

"Nine all-stars in the field of YA lit contribute stories. . . . An anthology of stand-alone stories that invite - no, demand - a straight read-through." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

Nine of YA literature's top writers, including Walter Dean Myers, Rita Williams-Garcia, Adam Rapp, Joseph Bruchac, and Sharon Flake reveal how it all goes down in a searing collection of short stories, in which each one picks up where the previous one ends. Characters weave in and out of narratives, perspectives change, and emotions play out for a fluid and fast-paced ode to the game of street basketball. Crackling with humor, grit, and streetball philosophy, and featuring poems and photographs by Charles R. Smith Jr., this anthology is a slam dunk.
