Slam Dunk!

Slam Dunk!

by Sharon Robinson

In this lively sequel to Safe at Home, Elijah "Jumper" Breeze is settling into his new home in Harlem, though it hasn't been easy since his father died and his mother moved them from the suburbs in Connecticut. Still, he made friends at summer camp, and he's eager to see them at his new middle school.

Jumper is looking forward to hitting the books and hitting the court for some serious b-ball. Then his best friend, Kelvin, talks him into running for student council and suddenly life gets a lot more complicated!
