Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Free Throws

Book cover for "Life, Love and the Pursuit of Free Throws" by Janette Rallison.

What can a friendship survive?

  • Embarrassing moments—of course.
  • Cranky teachers—it’s a given.
  • Jealousy—um, maybe…

Josie loves hottie Ethan Lancaster, the captain of the basketball team, but she can never do or say the right thing in front of him. So how can it be fair that Ethan is only interested in her best friend, Cami, when Cami isn’t even trying to get his attention? Or is she?

Cami dreams of winning her basketball team’s coveted MVP award, and earning the chance to take the court during a special halftime demonstration with WNBA star Rebecca Lobo, but her best friend, Josie, is a better player. So how can it be fair that Josie is a shoo-in for the honor if she’s barely interested in basketball in the first place and isn’t even trying to be the best? Or is she?

Told from two points of view, this novel of freshman life, love, and the pursuit of free throws displays the same delightful humor as Janette Rallison’s other novels.

So curl up and enjoy high school. (Because high school is much better when it’s a comedy.)
