Details about The Gatekeeper’s Staff by Antoine Bandele
The Gatekeeper’s Staff by Antoine Bandele ePub PDF free download – A basketball came hurling at TJ Young’s head. Too slow to get his hands up, the ball smacked against his cheek and out of bounds. Lamar, one of his opponents, howled like a damned hyena—and considering his sharp jaw was contoured like a snout, that was a fair comparison. TJ avoided Lamar’s squinting eyes as the boy’s laughter grew stronger with each passing moment, his teammates following suit with their own guffaws. One of them stomped their foot against the schoolyard asphalt for added effect. “This dude really tried to catch it with his face, though!” he bawled. “Some lucky charm he is,” the stout Christian whispered to Jordan, the tallest girl in eighth grade. TJ was sure they were regretting choosing him over Andy Wilkins. Andy was probably the worst fourteen-year-old dribbler in Los Angeles, but he could at least catch the ball. He must’ve looked much better than the flimsy “lucky charm” superstition bestowed upon TJ.
