From the Series Lorimer Sports Stories
All C.J. has ever wanted is to play basketball—one day pro basketball. Already in grade nine she’s the captain of her high school team in Naskup, British Columbia.
But her success comes at a price: her teammate Debi can’t accept someone so young as captain, and is making C.J.’s life as difficult as possible. To make matters much worse, one morning she wakes up and is barely able to get out of bed. When her doctor tells her she has arthritis, she worries whether she deserves to be captain. Recognizing her new limitations, however, she comes to truly understand teamwork, and becomes the leader her coaches knew she could be.
