When Debbie is on the basketball court she feels free and alive. But while she’s a good player she’s also an aggressive one, and rough tactics get her in trouble more than once.

Off the court she’s different from other girls, a foster child without “real” parents of her own. When Debbie learns she’s going to be adopted, her world is turned upside down. Until, that is, she’s accused of stealing from a teammate. From then on, it’s an uphill battle to prove herself to her new parents and her team.
