"The Contract" by Pat Forde
This is the story of two brothers from a blue-collar family in upstate New York Jimmer and T.J. both in need of help. One trying to make it to the NBA. The other trying to stay alive due to a debilitating illness. Both a lifeline to each other. T.J. wrote a contract for Jimmer to sign: I, James T. Fredette, agree on this day, Jan. 27, 2007, to do the work and make the necessary sacrifices to be able to reach my ultimate goal of playing in the NBA. Jimmer signed the contract, T.J. signed as the witness, and as Jimmer s fame spread, the contract became a prominent part of his backstory. Readers will learn about Jimmer s childhood and teen years as well as his special bond with his brother, T.J. Chapters include Jimmer s college basketball experience, his doubts, his goals, and the role his faith plays in his life.
