Waterstones Says

The premier thriller writer spins a tale of touching humanity and emotional power, as a South Sudanese basketball prodigy is torn between pursuing fame in the United States and saving the family he left behind.

ONE MAN
Seventeen-year-old Samuel Sooleyman comes from a village in South Sudan, a war-torn country where one third of the population is a refugee. His great love is basketball: his prodigious leap and lightning speed make him an exceptional player. And it may also bring him his big chance: he has been noticed by a coach taking a youth team to the United States.

ONE HOPE
If he gets through the tournament, Samuel's life will change beyond recognition. But it's the longest of long shots. His talent is raw and uncoached. There are hundreds of better-known players ahead of him. And he must leave his family behind, at least at the beginning.

ONE CHANCE
As American success beckons, devastating news reaches Samuel from home. Caught between his dream and the nightmare unfolding thousands of miles away, 'Sooley', as he's nicknamed by his classmates, must make hard choices about his future. This quiet, dedicated boy must do what no other player has achieved in the history of his chosen game: become a legend in twelve short months.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Read it, you'll want to cry too * Bill Clinton for The Guardian *
The joy of a Grisham novel is turning the pages as the plot propels you forward . . . Suffice it to say SOOLEY follows the familiar Grisham playbook - short chapters, plenty of foreshadowing, and a rapid-fire prose that's easy to read and hard to put down * Independent *

“Sorry, but Grisham has lost his spark”

“Disappointing”

Having really enjoyed Grisham's Bleachers, Playing for Pizza and Calico Joe, this was a big disappointment. It started well and I enjoyed the story of Sooley's journey from South Sudan to playing basketball... More

“A crime not to read this treasure!”

My first adventure into John Grisham's non-crime world and what a wonderful place it is! Tense as it develops and full of hope for Samuel "Sooley" with the only bad guys the other side of the planet.... More
