Playing ball is what keeps Podium Sports Academy’s basketball captain going when things get rough. When there’s trouble back home, Allie turns to basketball. Ditto when her relationship is in trouble or when she’s at odds with her friends. But then tragedy strikes when an old knee injury resurfaces and Allie is told she might not be able to play again. With her hope of a future as an elite basketball player gone, Allie is overwhelmed with dark thoughts and feels she has nothing left to live for. That is, until unexpected support comes from two unlikely sources: her folks back home and her friends at Podium, her home away from home.
