Received the book on March 20 and my 10-year old son and 13-year daughter both finished it that day. I finished it in one sitting the following day. Been a big fan of Mr. Yang since American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints and The Shadow Hero (all highly recommended) as well as his DC Comics work (#representationmatters). but this graphic novel is not necessarily an Asian-American story but a basketball story of the high school where he was a teacher. The storytelling is uniquely Mr. Yang's style, informal but poignant, easy to understand but also deeply relevant on some social issues we face today. Creative cover that has the feel of a basketball. Kudos!
