Summary

At twelve years old, Perri Daniels is a tomboy at heart, fitting right in with the guys. Instead of making up cheers and playing double dutch like most girls her age, she spends her time fighting, hooping, and playing video games alongside her best friend, Plus. Living in the Millwood Projects of Prince George’s County, Maryland, the two grow up more like family than friends.

However, as they enter their teenage years, Perri discovers her secret desire to be more than just Plus’s best friend. She has a terrible crush on him that just won’t go away. On prom night, their relationship takes an unforeseen turn, and on graduation day, Perri discovers she’s pregnant with Plus’s child. Forced to face the hard reality that, in spite of everything, Plus still considers her nothing more than a friend, she gives up her own basketball scholarship and carries on as a single mother.

As the years go by, Perri grows into a vivacious woman, and she and Plus gradually switch roles. Emotions he never knew existed come flooding in when he realizes he may have to share his best friend with another man after Derrick, a tall and handsome basketball player, sweeps Perri off her feet. NBA bound, Plus eventually goes on with his life, sharing only a daughter and a withering friendship with Perri.

Will Perri and Plus circle back to the connection they once shared, or will they let sleeping dogs lie? Find out in this urban adventure, a romantic journey through time, Love and the Game.
