Ball Don't Lie by Matt de la Peña

Sticky is a great basketball player with dreams of making it big but there are a number of obstacles that he has to face before he can get there. He has been abandoned 3 times in his life, he has obessive compulsive disorder, hes's been haunted from what happened to his mother and he is a white boy playing ball with grown black men. Can Sticky survive in this environment when everyone consider him a failure even before they see him in action? On the verge of graduating from high school. Sticky has no idea as to what he wants to do with his life other than play basketball and in the process of realizing that dream he may have to leave behind the only person that truely believed in him. Takes place at the historic Lincoln Rec in the Los Angles area.
