OLDER FICTION
Crutcher, Chris

Losers Bracket

(3) YA Annie's foster family takes good care of her, but she won't let go of her troubled "bio family." She devises a way to see them: at a basketball tournament, her team purposely drops into the losers' bracket, resulting in more games for Annie's birth family members to attend. Annie's first-person narrative, with intermittent transcripts from her therapist visits, is that of a smart, athletic teen surviving the family she has and finding the support system she needs.
