Ballin' for Natalie is a thought-provoking story filled with real-life issues that teenagers deal with every day. With more than potential to be heavily recruited by the top high schools and colleges to play basketball, gutsy Natalie has her eyes on the prize and is determined to one day go pro. Basketball provides a way out of her present situation of living in the Marcy Projects with her grandmother. But like most of us she harbors a family secret that mocks all that she aspires to become. And when that secret comes knocking, Natalie has to decide if the life she saves will be her own.
