Goosh: Seth McLane.

McLane, Seth (author.).

"The day before the start of middle school, life for thirteen-year-old Isaac Strawbridge is upended when the words “Mom has cancer” are spoken. Mom, Dad, and his little sister, Sammie, all find ways to deal with this tragic news. Isaac’s only refuge? Shelly Park, where he escapes to dribble and shoot his way toward making the school team.An old man, Mr. Brooks, visits the park. He’s 6’8”, hobbles around with the help of a cane, and is eager to impart his basketball wisdom. Isaac soon discovers he’s a local legend hiding a secret—an NBA past that went from fame and fortune to shame and isolation. Although he left the game behind decades ago, coaching Isaac resurrects his love of hoops—giving him the opportunity to mend the errors of his past.Isaac hides his mom’s cancer from everyone at school, and as the frustration builds inside him, he explodes when a teammate makes one too many “momma” jokes. Suddenly, this game he desperately needs no longer wants him.If Isaac can finally step to the line with confidence, maybe he can GOOSH the game-winning shot, and his coach and his family can find the healing they need." -- back cover
