Unfinished Business
by Gregory L. Prince

Runkus Black now enters Hillcrest Lagoon High School, which is still under construction. With dreams of lifting the coveted Stephenson Cup football (soccer) trophy, Runkus and some of his schoolmates find unlikely allies. On his school’s trip to the renowned Castleton Academy, Runkus and his friends get a whiff of what high-school-football glory is all about. At Castleton Academy, great football plans are afoot for Runkus’s old nemesis, Kennedy Edward Stephenson III (KES-III), who is poised to win football trophies just like his media tycoon dad, his grandfather, and great grandfather—the legendary Emerald Stephenson. Back at his new school, Runkus and his boys are determined to do the impossible. However, Hillcrest Lagoon High has no football history, playing facilities, program, or coach. Jade-Ann and her female classmates uncover the boys’ plan, and get involved. Momentum builds with a biennial scrimmage and juggling tournament, as well as their school’s interclass football competition. Undoubtedly, showdowns, faceoffs, and setbacks occur, guaranteeing lots of drama and action. Will hard work, discipline, determination, and faith help them conquer giants and prove the doubters wrong?

"The Jamaican-born author deftly connects the blossoming of Hillcrest ... to the year-to-year physical changes, character-building, and growing maturity of Runkus and his friends. Soccer fans will undoubtedly relish page after page of minute details of football practice, competitions, and strategy. A ... detailed coming-of-age novel with relatable male teen characters." - Kirkus Reviews
