More than Rivals ~ Ken Abraham

This is a book that everyone needs to read.  A true story that takes place in the 1970's in Tennessee, it is about two friends, their love for basketball, a championship game and transforming a town.  As Eddie and Bill are in a society of black and white and no gray areas, this book shows how these two friends change the way people see them for the inside not the outside appearance.  All they want is to play basketball and be friends, while society has other issues with this. 

I would recommend this to everyone and all ages, it is a great read.  Warning... Once you start reading you won't stop until the last page.  This story  is about forgiveness, understanding, faith, love, compassion and so much more, it has it all.  Great book for a book group that wants to be able to have great discussions.   I hope that make this into a movie. Ken always does a great job to get the message through his writings.
