Additional Details

Finley, an unnaturally quiet boy who is the only white player on his high school's varsity basketball team, lives in a dismal Pennsylvania town that is ruled by the Irish mob, and when his coach asks him to mentor a troubled African American student who has transferred there from an elite private school in California, he finds that they have a lot in common in spite of their apparent differences.

good teen novel

I've read 4 books by Matthew Quick this year, and BOY 21 is my favorite. I really enjoyed the boys and their relationship as it developed.
