New York Times bestselling author John Grisham takes you to a different kind of court in his first basketball novel. Samuel Sooley Sooleymon is a raw, young talent with big hoop dreams&hellip,and even bigger challenges off the court. In the summer of his seventeenth year, Samuel Sooleymon gets the chance of a lifetime: a trip to the United States with his South Sudanese teammates to play in a showcase basketball tournament. He has never been away from home, nor has he ever been on an airplane. The opportunity to be scouted by dozens of college coaches is a dream come true. Samuel is an amazing athlete, with speed, quickness, and an astonishing vertical leap. The rest of his game, though, needs work, and the American coaches are less than impressed. During the tournament, Samuel receives devastating news from home: A civil war is raging across South Sudan, and rebel troops have ransacked his village. His father is dead, his sister is missing, and his mother and two younger brothers are in a refugee camp. Samuel desperately wants to go home, but it's just not possible. Partly out of sympathy, the coach of North Carolina Central offers him a scholarship. Samuel moves to Durham, enrolls in classes, joins the team, and prepares to sit out his freshman season. There is plenty of more mature talent and he isn't immediately needed. But Samuel has something no other player has: a fierce determination to succeed so he can bring his family to America. He works tirelessly on his game, shooting baskets every morning at dawn by himself in the gym, and soon he's dominating everyone in practice. With the Central team losing and suffering injury after injury, Sooley, as he is nicknamed, is called off the bench. And the legend begins. But how far can Sooley take his team? And will success allow him to save his family? Gripping and moving, Sooley showcases John Grisham's unparalleled storytelling powers in a whole new light. This is Grisham at the top of his game.

Poctivo si kupujem každú novú knihu a stále čakám, že John Grisham ešte napíše skutočne dobrú knihu. Čakám a dúfam, no zatiaľ márne. Aj tento jeho literárny počin je, z môjho pohľadu, len priemerným príbehom, ktorému chýba všetko to, čo robí knihu vybočujúcou zo šedi iných kníh, ktorých sú kníhkupectvá plné. Sooley, hlavná postava príbehu, sa stal legendou (hoci fiktívnou), no Grishamova legenda...

Poctivo si kupujem každú novú knihu a stále čakám, že John Grisham ešte napíše skutočne dobrú knihu. Čakám a dúfam, no zatiaľ márne.

Sooley, hlavná postava príbehu, sa stal legendou (hoci fiktívnou), no Grishamova legenda (reálna) je trvalo podkopávaná Grishamom samým. Škoda, pretože potenciál má kniha skutočne veľký, no emócie, ktoré mohli byť, tak sa vďaka spisovateľovmu strohému takmer stenografickému štýlu a najmä krátkym vetám, nedajú vyvolať, je to celé studené.
