Losing is Not an Option by Rich Wallace
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ron is watcher, it seems. He watches his pick-up basketball team five guys trying to fit together on the court. He watches Dawn on the dance floor, and that tiny star tattoo on her shoulder. He watches Darby run, her short legs all sweat and muscle. He watches his friends veer off and up into popularity. He watches his dad move in with his grandmother and make do. But he s more than a watcher: He s a hustler on the court, a free-thrower, a poet, a poker player, a rule breaker, a loving grandson, a runner, and a ruthless competitor in those eight laps around the track the 3200 meter. In nine interwoven stories, award-winning author Rich Wallace brings a small-town high school to life through the sharp, spare voice and the heart-pounding defeats and triumphs of an athlete. "From the Hardcover edition.""
