Flowing like street poetry, this story evokes the drama of an inner city scrub game between the Shirts and the Skins. An injury gets 10-year-old James invited to play basketball with his head-taller elders. He fumbles, fighting for respect, until his anger at being teased drives him 'strong to the hoop,' and even the teaser is pleased. 'It feels as good as the last day of school,' says James. Graphically striking, the photos, layout, even the font choice lend detail and richness to the sociology of the inner city neighborhood.
