But it's not.
All Cray knows is that what's expected of him doesn't feel right. The pressure to make a decision—from his family, his friends—is huge. Until he meets Rayne, a girl who is taking a gap year, and who helps him find his first real job, at a home of four adults with developmental disabilities. What he learns about himself and others will turn out to be more than any university could teach him—and twice as difficult.

His work includes Night Driving, a Marion Vannett Ridgway Memorial Award winner and a Horn Book Fanfare title, Strong to the Hoop, an American Library Association Notable Book, Two Old Potatoes and Me, a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book, a Nickelodeon Jr.'s Best Books of the Year, and a featured book on Reading Rainbow, and Vroomaloom Zoom, a book of excellence on the Children's Literature Choice List. His newest picture book Around the World is about international basketball, and his YA novels include Crackback set in the high stakes world of high school football and Box Out about boys' basketball, girls' basketball, and taking a stand.
Read this pretty quickly. But enjoyed it. I can understand most of what Cray is going through. I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. Working is fine for now for me. I was kind of iffy about Rayne. She seemed weirdly perfect and I didn't like it.
