Some might think Jay was cheated. By his mother, who walked out when he was 9. By his dad, who took a job a couple thousand miles away and let him stay above a bar in a one-room apartment. By the basketball coach, who saw his talent but chose youth over determination. And even Jay's not sure whether this last year of high school in the small town of Sturbridge, Pennsylvania, will add up to anything. But just when senior year seems a waste--kissing the wrong girls, offending the right ones, playing basketball on a church league with other "rejects"--life begins to click again. The church league gives him some of the best basketball he's ever played, and the right girl gives him a second chance. Jay may not know what he wants next out of life, but he's beginning to get a clue about how to play the game.
