Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Andre Anderson is an African American teenager with a bright future. He loves to play basketball. He loves to hang out with his friends. He loves to laugh. Andre has skills, brains, and heart.

How can a man get up when he has been unjustly beaten down? Andre is about to find out. Andre is The Hoopster.

He lands a dream internship at a magazine, and just after he's given the chance to write a feature article, he's viciously attacked. Now everything he ever believed in is called into question.
