Description: Book club discussion - please join in if you have read the book

Summary by The School Library Journal:

Eddie Ball has a problem. He and his mother have dreamed of moving from the trailer park where they live, but now she has lost her job with Finkle Foods. Eddie and his friend, Annie, learn of a poetry contest sponsored by Finkle Foods. The winner of the contest gets an opportunity to sink a foul shot during halftime at the NBA finals and win one million dollars. Eddie is a good basketball player, and with coaching from Annie's father, he becomes even better. Mr. Finkle tries to get Eddie to throw his chance at winning the money because Finkle Foods is in financial trouble. Another complication arises when it appears someone is trying to sabotage Eddie's practice sessions.
