About The Book

Paul Christian is a high school senior standout All-American basketball player. In fact, Paul is the number one basketball player in the country. Paul can go to any major university in the country because he is that good. Paul lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, and his dream is to play college basketball for his favorite hometown team, the North Carolina State University
Wolfpack. At first, everything is going well in Paul’s senior year until his dream is derailed when he is diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia-a cancer with a 50 percent chance of survival.

Crushed, Paul’s enthusiasm for life and love for basketball turns into pure hate, confusion, sadness, being miserable, questioning God, and not really wanting to live. Paul's discouragement of life continues its downward spiral until he befriends Jericho Walls, a funny and positive thirteen-year-old who is also suffering from terminal cancer. Unlike Paul, Jericho has not let the cancer stop him from living his life to the fullest extent while helping rescued birds at the local Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. What Paul learns from young Jericho will change his life forever.
