Chapter 1

Nathan Scott lived and breathed basketball. He loves the game and his main goal in life was to be a Duke Blue Devils. And the best way to prove himself and his abilities was by getting in High Flyers, the best national basketball camp. High Flyers has a three month summer basketball training program and the only way to get in was to have a nomination from a basketball coach.

This wasn’t going to be an easy task for Nathan as his family moved around a lot; even though he was a great player to Tree Hill High School. Actually, he is the best and most value basketball player at Tree Hill High school, and that was saying a lot since he just moved there six months ago. Coach Whitey Durham was unsure if Nathan had the ability to go to High Flyers but he was willing to take his chances, after all it could only help him improve and develop as a person.

In the first few days of the summer holidays, Nathan was over the moon that Coach Durham had given him the chance to get into High Flyers. He knew from past experience that camp was going to be anything from easy but he would have to find the best way possible to see it through the whole summer.

When he first arrived at the camp, it was straight into a warm up game, so the coaches could see the different abilities and personalities of their players. In the first game, Nathan had a one on one with another player of the same ability named Matt James. He wanted more than anything to show that he was better than Matt. By half time he was starting to realise Matt was just as good as him, if not better in some case. Nathan wasn’t one to admit that someone else was better than him at a sport he loved; from that point on he was going to make sure that he was better than Matt.

Later that evening, Nathan realised that trying to outplay Matt wasn’t going to be that easy, especially when he walked into the dorm room that he would be staying for the summer. He knew that he wouldn’t get a room to himself but out of all the guys at the camp, he didn’t think that his roommate would be Matt James.

From here on in, he had to try and get along with Matt just to make it through the whole summer. Little did he know that Matt James would have the solution to help him get through the camp.
