Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Debbie is on the basketball court she feels free and alive. But while she's a good player, she's also an aggressive one, and rough tactics get her in trouble more than once. Off the court she's different from other girls, a foster child without 'real' parents of her own. When Debbie learns she's going to be adopted, her world is turned upside down. Until, that is, she's accused of stealing from a teamate. From then on, it's an uphill battle to prove herself to her new parents and her team. Home Court Advantage shows how young players' behavior on the court and their lives off it are inextricably linked.

Synopsis:

Debbie's a foster child, and life has sometimes been tough, so Debbie has learned to be tough back, both at home and on the court. But when a nice couple decides to adopt her, Debbie suddenly isn't so sure of herself?and her new teammates aren't so sure about her either.
