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.

This gripping story, with plenty of drama both on and off the court, will appeal to any young basketball fan.
