By Walter Dean Myers
Many times in our lives, obstacles and problems come our way. It's how we handle them that truly matters.
Greg "Slam" Harris is a star basketball athlete. He's great on the court and with the girls. It's off the court where he begins to struggle. Throughout his school life he has had problems with grades, homework, and projects. Plus, he has a problem with his temper. His mom and all of his teachers and principals keep nagging at him to study more or get a tutor. But he doesn't want any of that. He believes that basketball is all he needs. But when he gets a talk from an assistant coach he realizes there is much more to life than basketball. He is taught that it is good to have a goal and focus on it. But you can't forget what is going on around you. Join Slam and the millions of other readers on his journey to find what his future holds for him.
What will you do to accomplish your goals?
