the book hoops is about a teenager named Lonnie who hopes to play in the NBA someday. He meets a homeless guy named Cal and they bond together as Cal was once in the same position as Lonnie although Cal ruined his life by drinking and gettting involved with the bad people so he tries to teach Lonnie what not to do. They build a strong relationship and become very good friends until......
One lesson that I learnned is that you shouldn't take anything for granit because al of that can easily be lost when you have so many good things going for you and that's what happend to Cal. This is a great lesson for everybody to see. I think that all teenagers should read this book because this book is extremly interesting and this may be the best book I have read so far.
