I started a new book called Hoop Dreams. This book is the story of Arthur Agee and William Gates. This book is based on the movie of these two rising basketball stars. This book is a lot like Friday Nigtht Lights. Both of these books are based on true stories and follow a select group of people. Both have similar plot lines and similar characters. And both involve high school kids. But Friday Night Lights was more of a history of the town and not so much about individual's lives. Hoop Dreams follows the lives of two boys throughout high school and even into college.
