Box Out

8:44 AM Posted by Lori Calabrese

In Box Out, Liam has just been bumped up to starter on the varsity basketball team, and the pressure's on. You'd think he'd be happy, but with the girls' team heading to State, the boys' team is under even greater scrutiny than usual in Liam's small midwestern town. When Liam discovers that the coach is leading prayer sessions and enforcing teamwide participation---Liam finds himself in a spotlight that's more nerve-racking than any trip to the free-throw line. In trying to stand up for what's right, Liam is forced to stand up for himself---against his teammates, his fellow students, and even his parents.
