Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best seller Mike Lupica makes his return to the basketball court!

There's a reason teammates call him "True". Because for basketball phenom Drew Robinson, there is nothing more true than his talent on the court. It's the kind that comes along once in a generation and is loaded with perks - and with problems.

Before long, True buys in to his own hype, much to the chagrin of his mother, who wants to keep her boy's head grounded - and suddenly trouble has a way of finding him. That is, until a washed-up former playground legend steps back onto the court and takes True under his wing.

In this age of street agents promising riches to kids barely out of elementary school and college programs being taken down because of recruiting violations, True Legend is a resonant and inspiring novel in the Lupica tradition.

LOVED IT!!!

I loved this book. It had a great storyline with lots of heart filled emotion. While being simple and was not too hard to follow along with, had so much great content and wanted you to just keep listening. Definitely recommend this book to anyone
