Description

Ever since she saw her first game at Madison Square Garden. Allie's been hooked on basketball. And when her dad buys Allie her very own basketball, she can't wait to play But her confidence takes a tumble when the older boys at the neighborhood courts laugh at her first attempts. She tries to convince her girlfriends to play with her. "My brother says basketball's a boy's game," her friend Keisha says.

The boys she knows won't play with Allie either. On the verge of giving up, Allie has one last go at it, and she makes the basket! Inspired by her persistence, her friends all want to join in.

Allie's perseverance in the face of adversity is an important lesson for young athletes, particularly girls. Dynamic, colorful illustrations and positive representations of children from different cultures complement the inspiring story.
