Publisher's Summary

Eddie "Air" Ball wants to win the Finkle Foods poetry contest for a chance to sink a million-dollar free throw at halftime of the NBA finals. He knows he can make the shot, no problem. He's not so sure he can write a winning poem, though. Luckily, Eddie has the help of his best friend, Annie "Oakley" Stokely. Not only is Annie as good at shooting baskets as Eddie is, she also knows a lot about writing poems. Together, the two friends might have a chance to win the money that will help their parents move them out of their trailer park homes.

With entertaining books like Babe and Me and The Kid Who Ran for President, Dan Gutman has become one of the most popular writers of young adult titles around. Johnny Heller's narration hits nothing but net in this engaging tale of basketball and life.
