Reviewed in the United States on January 4, 2021
This is a 1-in-100 masterclass of a graphic novel. It's about a high school basketball team, but you don't need to be into basketball to love it. You'll learn about the history of basketball (I didn't know that the WNBA used a smaller ball than the NBA), you'll learn about high school sports, and you'll fall in love with every character. Every part of this novel is a 10/10 for me. The art, the story, the creativity, etc. It's approachable and interesting for people who never read graphic novels. And it pushes the envelope for people who've read hundreds of graphic novels. I haven't read anything as good as this in a few years. It'll win buckets of Eisners awards, I'm sure.

In my review, I've included an image from one of the chapters when Yang discusses why a Sikh student chose to go to a Catholic high school. Most of the novel reads much more like a story, but it's the only screenshot I took while reading.
