BJ's mother is short.
Mom is an abstract painter who runs an arty café. BJ, however, takes after her missing father. Just twenty-one, she’s a college basketball player who lives and breathes the game. High tops and hoops occupy her every waking moment. When she accidentally discovers her dad, a shadowy presence throughout her whole life, she suspects her best friends may actually be closer than she thinks—are they her sisters? Maybe there is more family she’s never met!  BJ just wants to keep her mind on the game.
