Summary

"Tamani masterfully bounces and slams two hearts up and down a shrouded court of first love and revelations." --Rita Williams-Garcia, National Book Award Finalist and New York Times-bestselling author

"A superb, complex romance full of heart, humor, and unforgettable characters." --Kirkus (starred review)

From the moment Carli and Rex first locked eyes on a Texas high school basketball court, they both knew it was destiny. But can you truly love someone else if you don't love yourself? Acclaimed author Liara Tamani's luminous second novel explores love, family, heartbreak, betrayal, and the power of healing, in gorgeous prose that will appeal to readers of Nicola Yoon and Jacqueline Woodson.

A glance was all it took. That kind of connection, the immediate and raw understanding of another person, just doesn't come along very often. And as rising stars on their Texas high schools' respective basketball teams, destined for bright futures in college and beyond, it seems like a match made in heaven. But Carli and Rex have secrets. As do their families.

Liara Tamani, the author of the acclaimed Calling My Name, follows two teenagers as they discover how first love, heartbreak, betrayal, and family can shape you--for better or for worse. A novel full of pain, joy, healing, and hope for fans of Elizabeth Acevedo, Jacqueline Woodson, and Jenny Han.

"A beautifully poignant love letter: to a first love, to basketball, and to that enigmatic bunch we think we know best, only to discover we don't know at all--family. Tamani's latest is a bright shining star." --David Arnold, New York Times-bestselling author of Mosquitoland

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Texas high school junior basketball star Rex Carrington has a tradition at the free-throw line: blowing a kiss to his mother, who died giving birth to him. On the day his kiss happens to land on 16-year-old Carli, another basketball champion from another school, she passes out, he catches her, and the two form a bond that eventually turns into love. Through poetic, economic prose and alternating points of view, Tamani (Calling My Name) evokes myriad emotions: Rex associates his father's neglect with blame for Rex's mother's death; Carli wants to quit basketball and is devastated over her parents' recent separation. Though complexities threaten the romance (misunderstandings, family secrets, Rex's frustrations, and Carli's reluctance to be open), most prominently shown is its passion ("It's like we're two trees secretly sharing nutrients underground, two stars orbiting around all the things there's no language for"). Readers will be easily swept away by this tale exploring the hearts and souls of two emotionally vulnerable athletes. Ages 13--up. Agent: Jennifer Carlson, Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary. (June)"
