Go and see basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar read a selection from his new book!
" NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar celebrates the release of the second installment of the "Streetball Crew" series of novels for young adults...
"Stealing the Game" is the fast-paced and entertaining story about teamwork, friendship, dark secrets and having blind faith for those in our lives who have earned it.
"Stealing the Game" is not a saccharine-infused young adult novel. It is a wry and rollicking thrill ride that also tackles substantive issues like building self-esteem in teenagers, celebrating one’s individuality and what it means to feel special. And it never loses sight of the fact that teenagers also talk trash on the court, debate zombies and fall in love while watching classic French movies.
