Life in a small mill town doesn't seem to be all that interesting.  But Brenda's senior year in school will bring many changes.  Her older brother has been killed in a car accident.  The town's mill has closed down and put many of the residents out of work.  Her basketball coach has moved on leaving the team up in the air.  But the assistant coach has stepped in to coach the girls.  The new coach has her own way of working with the girls.  She has them recite poetry as they take their shots.  Do you think there is any chance that this could work?
