The Game (The Do-Over)
1 Jul. 2019
Marcus and his best friend Taj have never been great at basketball. But during the final game of the season, their coach finally gives them the chance to play. As the minutes count down, Marcus chokes and misses his shot while Taj saves the day with a buzzer-beater. That night Marcus receives a text from an unknown number asking if he would like a do-over. He accepts and gets to relive the game and make the winning shot. But will correcting his mistake be worth taking away his best friend's moment to shine?Darby Creek publishes series fiction for emerging, striving, and reluctant readers ages 8 to 18 (grades 4–12).
