Marcus is the latest star at an athletically prestigious Baltimore high school. In the fall, he starts at running back on the varsity football team and in the winter, he starts at shooting guard for the varsity basketball team. He has his pick of a Division I scholarship in either of the two sports. But when Marcus gets in a bad fight with a white player at a preseason basketball tournament, racial tensions start to run high. Will Marcus be consumed by his anger? Baltimore is a book from Hoop City, an EPIC Press six set series. Some titles may contain explicit content and/or language.

Hoop City - Youth Services Book Review
. . . an excellent choice for reluctant readers, those reading below grade level and ESL students. Strong, likeable characters, realistic situations, very well done. Recommend to high school students interested in sports, especially boys and those ready to graduate.
