Owen lives to be on the basketball team, but when a new coach arrives at school, his confidence about his spot on the team starts to get a little shaky. At the same time, his twin brother, Russell, decides he might try out for the basketball team. Russell has always been more interested in math than sports. Is it fair for one twin to crowd out the other's interest?
This is an appealing look at the ways that family and friends can react when people try to break out of their existing boxed roles. Chapters alternate between viewpoints, so readers can see the story unfold from each twin's perspective.
