Summary, etc.: Sugar Rodgers's road to a successful WNBA career was fraught with hardship and tragedy. Left essentially homeless at fourteen, she clung to basketball as a way to keep herself focused and sane. Here Rodgers delivers a powerful message of discipline, perseverance, and self-determination for anyone growing up in economically challenging conditions. -- adapted from back cover.
