The Fifth Quarter: Hard Court (Paperback)
Grab a seat, and get ready to cheer Lori on once again, as she works through the growing pains of middle-school and faces her fears—on the court and in life.
Sixth grade is here! Just when Lori starts to get comfortable, things change again. Lori’s friends have found new interests. Her dad goes back to work for the first time since she was born. And when her mom decides to start coaching in the new after-school basketball league, Lori’s home life collides with her passion. To make matters worse, all her friends are playing for the opposing team. Lori feels frustrated and alone, like she might be falling behind in her game.
