Mason's basketball team, the Cabbagetown Raptors, is going co-ed after seven successful seasons. He's pretty open-minded about the change, especially after he meets Cindy, a really top-notch player. The other guys aren't so sure.
Before long everyone has taken sides, and the Raptors' chances of making the national finals seem to fade into oblivion. When Mason's growing friendship with Cindy goes sour, however, he takes it upon himself to make things better, both with Cindy and the team.
Fast-paced and action-packed, Slam Dunk explores issues that arise when boys and girls play together on mixed teams. [Fry Reading Level - 4.2
