It's March Madness, and the University of Monroe Metrics are
heading for an early end to a good but not great season. Then they
are inspired by a mentor who shows them how to see the poetry
inside and outside of them. The Metrics use this new energy to
begin a march toward the national championship game and a date with
their greatest potential. Mark Fogarty's sweet, funny short novel
will introduce you to a team of worldclass athletes: Pip Pippen,
who may or may not be related to Scottie Pippen; Lady Dagger, a
combination of elegance and personal poetry; Jams, who has dunked
in practice but never in a game; Meta Mustapha, who finds this book
a name; GG, who has Pip's back when opposing players headhunt her;
the backups, a closeknit group known as the Beeline, and Silly, an
injured player who travels with the team. You'll also meet their
nemesis, the Constitution University Amendments and their star
player, the Big Girl; the Diametrics, the Metrics' offbeat marching
band; and their poetry coach Eduardo Jonas.
