Take the Shot

Author(s): White, Sue
Bug has a secret. Actually, he has a lot of secrets. By this point, Bug’s secrets have secrets. Like…Number one: he’s formed a basketball team at his new school based on a giant lie. Number two: his parents don’t know he’s playing basketball again. Number three: his new teammates have no idea he isn’t allowed to play, and they definitely don’t know why. Bug will do anything to keep his secrets, keep his new team and keep his life from falling apart. Because no one can know the biggest secret of all: Bug risks his life every time he steps out onto the basketball court.
