Isaiah is a hot-shot freshman, talented and hard-working enough to be on the varsity basketball team at one of the top private high schools in Detroit. The problem is, his family is breaking apart and he is losing street-cred with his new suburban address. Will Isaiah be able to rise above the taunts from teammates and opponents-real or imagined? Will he be able to overcome the deconstruction of his family? Detroit 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.
