Julie Albright is dealing with big changes since her parents’ divorce. When she finds out that her new school has a basketball team, life starts looking up—until the coach says girls aren’t allowed to play. Julie decides to fight for a place on the team, and almost loses her best friend in the process. Meanwhile, a school project forces her to face some hard truths about her family—and herself. As the holidays arrive, Julie begins to realize that changes can be both bad and good, and that sometimes the best way to cope is to make a few changes of her own.
