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 tells her 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. Growing up in San Francisco in the 1970s, Julie begins to realize that sometimes the best way to cope with change is to make a few changes of her own. Includes gorgeous full-color illustrations and a “Looking Back” historical section. 120 pages. Paperback. Author: Megan McDonald.
