A fantastic and fun basketball series by Australian Olympian and NBA star Patty Mills that will entertain young readers, inspire kids to achieve their goals through sport, and showcase Patty's pride in his Indigenous heritage.

There's a new team in town: the Shadows.

And sport-mad Patty Mills has something to prove . . .

Tyson is Patty's arch-rival. And when he gives Patty a hard time about his people, it really hurts. But it makes Patty more determined than ever.

Playing for the Shadows, Patty and his friends have a chance to shine - and show that Indigenous kids can do anything.

After a huge improvement, they make the grand final. And the result will come down to the final seconds of the game.

Patty Mills was named Person of the Year at the NAIDOC Awards 2017.
