Plot Outline:

Jamal is an inner-city African-American teen with prowess for basketball and writing. When a prep school accepts him, he finds it is more for his sports skill than his mind. When he befriends reclusive writer William Forrester, he not only brings the writer out of his shell, but finds his own dreams can become true. -- Chris Kavan

Reasons why some of us live and why some of us don't! Fortunately for you, you have decades to figure that out!" and the letter "You need to know that while I knew so very early that you would realize your dreams, I never imagined I would once again realize my own. Seasons change young man, and while I may have waited until the winter of my life, to see the things I've seen this past year, there is no doubt I would hav...
