What do you do when you are eleven years old, six feet tall, and not only hate basketball, but can’t play the game? Alexander “Suitcase” Bingham really wants to know. He’s sick and tired of being the last kid picked in gym class. He’s sick and tired about beind teased for his size. And he’ sick and tired of not being the athletic son his daddy seems to want. Xander has had enough. Whatever it takes to show the gym rats that he can beat them at their own game, he’s determined to do.
