The Last Shot

Timing is everything, as they say. I read this book as a sophomore in high school and couldn't put it down, carrying with me on a trip to Egypt with my mom. Darcy Frey chronicles the lives of the star basketball players at Abraham Lincoln High School in Coney Island, a notorious area for pick-up games and housing projects. The most compelling character, even more than Stephon Marbury, is a determined and eccentric Darryle Flicking (called "Russell Thomas" in the book), who so desperately wants to leave his Brooklyn ghetto, and views basketball as his only means to go to college; his last shot for a better life.
