Description

Through lots of hard work, Patty's skills have improved out of sight. And he's invited to step it up in a big basketball tournament. Even though he'll miss out on time in his beloved Torres Strait, playing in a major competition in Sydney is an opportunity too exciting to pass up. Patty starts to think he might have a future in basketball. But an injury puts it all at risk. Could Patty's dream be over before it's begun?

Author Biography

Patty Mills was born on August 11, 1988 in Canberra, Australia. His father Benny is from the Torres Strait Islands, and his mother Yvonne is an Australian Aboriginal originally from the Kokatha people in South Australia. Patty was born into a family that was surrounded by basketball. His parents founded Shadows Basketball in the early 80's, a local Canberra club created to provide a sense of community, familiarity, and opportunities for Indigenous people through basketball. Today, Patty plays with the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA and is the only Indigenous Australian to win an NBA Championship (2013/14 season). He is a triple Olympian (Beijing '08, London '12, Rio de Janeiro '16) and currently represents the Australian Boomers. Dr Jared Thomas is a Nukunu person of the Southern Flinders Ranges, an Arts Development Officer at Arts, South Australia and an Indigenous Literacy Foundation ambassador. Jared's play Flash Red Ford toured Uganda and Kenya in 1999 and his play Love, Land and Money featured during the 2002 Adelaide Fringe Festival. Jared's young adult novel, Sweet Guy, was shortlisted for the 2009 South Australian People's Choice Awards for Literature and his children's book, Dallas Davis, the Scientist and the City Kids is published by the Oxford University Press Yarning Strong series. His YA novels, Songs that Sounds Like Blood (2016) and Calypso Summer (2014) are published by Magabala Books. Jared's writing explores the power of belonging and culture. He lives in Adelaide with his partner and two daughters.
