(From the publisher):
Away from home and off to a seminary boarding school for the first time, Roch finds he is expected to play basketball. It’s seen as an important tool for facing life’s challenges if he is “to go very far on the road of life.” And so begins the latest in Roch’s sports misadventures as fear of failure sends him running into the night and terrors worse than those on the basketball court. It all leads to a surprise ending as he finds his own way of making his mark.
