Talented thirteen-year-old Ashlee Carson is the Tribeca Saints' topscoring point guard. Ashlee is smart, too, but her mom worries that basketball is going to get in the way of her bright academic future. Ashlee will do anything for a chance to win a place on the National Youth basketball team -- even if it means defying her mother and enlisting the help of her estranged father, a former professional basketball player. This gripping story, with plenty of drama both on and off the court, will appeal to any young basketball fan.

"Go, Saints! Go, Saints!" the fans yelled.
<p
Five minutes to go to the end of the game, and the Saints were edging
ahead. But the Panthers had the ball; they were dribbling up the court—
Ashlee fell back to defend.
<p
"Yeah, Ashlee!" the Saints fans cried as she stole the ball back.
