From WNBA MVP, Olympic gold medalist, and global ambassador to the Special Olympics Elena Delle Donne comes the fifth novel in a middle grade series with as much heart as there is game.
Elle has been having a lot of fun on the volleyball team, a mentality she has decided to take with her to basketball once she rejoins the team. But even though Elle has decided she wants to return…will her teammates and coach welcome her back with open arms?
It may take more than a swish to make this a winning decision!
