When Serge is recruited from the Sudan to come play basketball at a high profile prep school in Chicago, there are bigger obstacles than culture shock to contend with. His teammates are skeptical of his skills and do not fully bring him into their circle. Plus, the thoughts of Serge's father and older brother being killed by rebels back in the Sudan, consume him. Will Serge be able to put his past behind him and make something of his life in America through basketball? Chicago 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.
