Chinatown, San Francisco, 1939: Calvin Chin is a basketball hustler who uses a "bumbling immigrant" act to con prejudiced local teens out of their money. When a scout sees Calvin and his best friend, Barney, playing on the streets, he makes them an offer: join his traveling Chinese American basketball team and receive a steady salary-and fame. The boys sign up and hit the road. Calvin's flashy style distinguishes him, and the coach pushes him to be the team's star. As Calvin's minor renown goes to his head, the team falls apart, and so does Calvin and Barney's friendship. Afterword. Bibliography.
